"The Enigma of Amigara Fault" is one of Junji Ito's best renowned and beloved short stories and for good reason.
In very few, beautifully illustrated pages, it tells a tale that is haunting yet uncannily relatable.
This video essay attempts to let the story come to life and investigates the psychological and sociological themes behind this eerie tale about a hole in a wall that's been made for you whose beckoning you are physically unable to resist. Even if it kills you.
