Kwaidan is a cinematic and atmospheric piece for teenagers and adults inspired by Japanese ghost stories and horror movies.

It features life-sized puppets, humanettes, shadows, acting and videos. Set in Japan in the early 1980s, Kwaidan tells the story of Haru, a young woman who comes back to her abandoned childhood home after many years of absence. Strange events happen as the house seems to be inhabited by spirits and ghosts from the past. As the story unfolds, the memory of a terrible event resurfaces.

If you enjoy a good ghost story, do check out THE CABINET OF CURIOSITIES at Watershed 1pm

PS You can also watch New Visions: Materials Stories at 7pm - short films from the next generation of talented film makers and animators.

Rouge28 have created something of a classic in the puppetry mystery horror genre.
