We’re thrilled to include this groundbreaking Japanese silent film that defies conventions and plunges viewers into the depths of madness and despair. “A Page of Madness” is testament to the power of visual storytelling and cinematic experimentation.

Set within the walls of a mental asylum in Japan, the film follows the story of a janitor (Masao Inoue) who takes a job at the institution in order to be closer to his wife (Yoshie Nakagawa), a former performer who has been institutionalized after suffering a mental breakdown. As the janitor navigates the eerie corridors of the asylum, he encounters a cast of characters haunted by their own inner demons, including patients, doctors, and nurses.
