For centuries, the Aokigahara Forest at the north west base of Mount Fuji has been linked with death and torment. Such strong associations have kept it a cultural marker for Japanese belief in the paranormal world. Legend speaks of the 'ubasute', spectres of old women abandoned by their famlies, and the 'yurei', spirits of lonely suicide victims. Now Sara is about to enter the sinister green canopy known as the ‘Sea of Trees’ hoping to find the answer to why her twin sister Jess has mysteriously disappeared. Ex-patriate journalist Aiden and forest path guide Michi are there to keep a protective eye on her. But as darkness falls, fear soon fragments Sara’s conscious as she faces the swelling legion of ghosts that prey on anyone who gets close. For learning the truth about her sister’s fate means supernatural suspense, creeping dread and a shocking malevolence she must fight to save herself.

 

Natalie Dormer will be in attendance to introduce the film.
