Japanese experimental filmmaker Toshio Matsumoto focuses on a chaotic love triangle at Bar Genet in Tokyo. The exuberant 1960s aesthetic connects pop art with Bertolt Brecht, and this beautifully restored cult film presents an unabashed portrait of an underground community of drag queens within Japanese nightlife.


This delightfully chaotic and typically Japanese gay film captures the ferocity of alternative culture in Shinjuku, Tokyo in the 1960s. The new star hostess of Bar Genet is transgender icon Eddie, whose self-confidence and sexuality scare Leda, traditionally the bar’s madam, and attracts Gonda, the bar’s owner. As Eddie becomes entangled in this ménage à trois, she deals with joint-smoking dropouts, watches experimental films, dances to distorted rock music, and sometimes ends up in demonstrations. Matsumoto described the structure and form of the film as having a mirror broken and then picking up the shards.
