In Echigo, Japan, the snow lies several feet deep, covering landscape and villages. Over the centuries, the inhabitants have organized their lives accordingly. To record their distinctive forms of everyday life, Ottinger journeyed to the mythical snow country with two Kabuki performers. Kabuki, poetry, and the reality of Snow Country combine with the Yumiko Tanaka’s music to make a visually striking and moving film.
