35mm film, black and white
A Japanese short horror film. Kagami Jigoku Kobayashi notes in his book Carnal Curses, Disfigured Dreams: Japanese Horror & Bizarre Cinema 1898-1949 that “There is no official record of Bake Jizo's existence – only later recollection of cameraman Shiro Asano, Konishi Honten was a photography in Nihonbashi, Tokyo, which imported the first film to Japan”
Jizo is the protector of dead children and creatures trapped in Hell and can usually be found in graveyards.
Cameraman: Shiro Asano
