Black Sun

Black Sun

Synopsis

Black Sun is a manic, oddball, anti–buddy picture about a young, jazz-obsessed Japanese drifter and a black American GI on the lam in Tokyo – with original music by American jazz drummer Max Roach. The two outsiders become outlaws, and Koreyoshi Kurahara depicts their growing bond as an alternately absurd and tragic culture clash.
