Page of Madness is one of the greatest avant-garde films in history. It was directed by Kinugasa Teinosuke in 1926, and lost for nearly half-a-century. The story, by Nobel laureate Kawabata Yasunari, centers on a janitor at the insane asylum that holds his wife. Renowned Japanese benshi Kataoka Ichiro will narrate the film and Detroit area trio Little Bang Theory (Frank Pahl, Terri Sarris, and Doug Shimmin), will perform an original score written by Frank Pahl on toy and hand-made instruments.
