Film Screening: Fusé: Memoirs of a Huntress (2012, Masayuki Miyaji)

 

The film

Hamaji is a strong and independent girl who lives alone in a mountain. Surviving as a hunter just like her grandfather, she one day receives a letter from her brother who lives in Edo. He wants her help in hunting “fuse”, half-human half-dog beings who consume human souls. Reaching the big city, she gets lost and ends up meeting Shino, a fuse.
