The Blood of Wolves

Shiraishi Kazuya

After directing shorts, music videos and TV shows, Shiraishi Kazuya (b. 1974) made his feature debut with Lost Paradise in Tokyo in 2009. His 2013 crime thriller The Devil’s Path became a critical and commercial success. His 2016 follow-up, the true-life-based cop thriller Twisted Justice was a box office disappointment, but he rebounded with Birds Without Names, a 2017 relationship drama that won many domestic awards including a Japan Academy Best Actress prize for star Aoi Yu. He also reunited with The Devil’s Path stars Lily Franky and Pierre Taki for Sunny/32, a genre-crossing film about a school teacher who becomes an object of worship for a crazed cult.
