“Japanese cult director Koji Wakamatsu‘s third film project for 2012!” exclaims Wildgrounds. “The Millennial Rapture is an adaptation of a Kenji Nakagami novel, Sennen no Yuraku—translated as ‘A thousand years of pleasure.’ It’s a collection of six stories about the live-hard-die-fast young men of the Burakumin—one of the main minority groups in Japan.”
With Shinobu Terashima and Arata.
