Synopsis:
It is difficult to summarise Shohei Imamura's legendary 1967 film, the first picture produced by Japan's countercultural Art Theatre Guild (ATG). Is it a documentary that turns into a fiction? A narrative film from beginning to end? A record of improvisation populated with actors or non-actors (and in what proportion)? Is it the investigation into a true disappearance, or a work merely inspired by actual events? Even at the conclusion of its final movement, A Man Vanishes [Ningen johatsu, or The Unexplained Disappearance of a Human Being] mirrors its subject in deflecting inquiries into the precise nature of its own being. A middle-class salaryman has gone missing - possibly of his own accord - and a film crew has set out to assemble a record of the man and the events surrounding his disappearance. As the crew meticulously builds a cachet of interviews with the man's family and lovers, their subject and his motivations become progressively more elusive - until the impossibility of the endeavour seems to transform the very film itself. Long unavailable anywhere on home video, Imamura's A Man Vanishes remains a unique and crucial entry in a provocative filmmaker's body of work, daring as it does to ask the big questions: what is reality, and what is a man?

What at first purports to be a documentary on the missing person problem in overcrowded Japan develops into Imamura's most brilliant illustration of the absurdity of 'objective cinema.' Using only a small crew and no cast as such, Imamura follows up on one of hundreds of missing persons reports filed with the police. He interviews the missing man's family, employers, acquaintances, and his fiancée, who has filed the report thinking that her own sister has murdered the man. The film takes on a surreal aspect when the fiancée loses interest in the murder and takes a strong liking to the interviewer himself. Using sync sound and hidden camera techniques to blur fact and fiction filmmaking long before it was trendy to do so, Imamura effects the final breakdown of cinema verité in the film's audacious final sequence.
