Transgender actor Pîtâ gives an astonishing performance as Eddie, hostess at Bar Genet – where she’s ignited a violent love-triangle with reigning drag queen Leda for the attentions of club owner Gonda.

One of Japan’s leading experimental filmmakers, Toshio Matsumoto bends and distorts time, and freely mixes documentary interviews, Brechtian film-within-a-film asides, Oedipal premonitions of disaster, his own avant-garde shorts, and even on-screen cartoon balloons. Funeral Parade of Roses is a celebration of youth and subcultures, a condemnation of intolerance, and a one-of-kind cinematic experience. A kaleidoscopic masterpiece, and one of the most subversive, intoxicating films of the 60s, released for the first time on Blu-ray in the UK.

This special two-disc edition is strictly limited to 3,000 copies.
