Toshio Matsumoto, who died in April at 85, was one of Japan's most prominent avant-garde filmmakers. His magnum opus, 1969's Funeral Parade of Roses, is an astonishing blend of documentary and art-house techniques that caused a stir in its native country for its frank depiction of homosexuality. A psychedelic, no-holds-barred plunge into the world of Tokyo drag queens, the film purportedly was an influence on Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange. Cinefamily will afford audiences an opportunity to rediscover this experimental landmark, freshly restored by Cinelicious Pics, for one week beginning Friday.
