"Kyofu kikei ningen" will be released this summer on DVD in the US by Synapse. Uncut and with tons of extras. 
Maybe Marc can give us more information?

  Dear colleagues,

  I read in the Midnight Eye that Ishii Teruo's "Kyofu kikei ningen" has never been released for mass consumption.  I wonder if anyone has a tip on how I might see this film, or connections to someone who can screen it for me.



  PS. Some months ago, there was a question on this forum about buto dancers in films, so you might be interested in Min Tanaka's new film "Umihiko yamahiko maihiko" about him dancing across Indonesia.  I just saw it last night at Theater N in Shibuya.  Its a pretty interesting and amazing film in a lot of ways.  I think its playing for the rest of June.  Its not subtitled, but some information is given simultaneously in English and Japanese. More info at:
