The sole inhabitants of a small island off the coast of Japan are a farmer, his wife, and their two small sons.

Hadaka no shima = The island by Kaneto Shindō( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in Japanese and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Filmed on the virtually deserted Setonaikai archipelago in south-west Japan, the movie tells the story of a small family unit and their subsistence as the only inhabitants of an arid, sun-baked island. Daily chores, captured as a series of cyclical events, result in a hypnotising, moving and beautiful film harkening back to the silent era
The naked island = Hadaka no shima( Visual )

1 edition published in 2016 in Japanese and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The international breakthrough for one of Japan's most innovative filmmakers, who went on to make such other marvelous movies as Onibaba and Kuroneko. It follows a family whose home is on a tiny, remote island off the coast of Japan. They must row a great distance to another shore, collect water from a well in buckets, and row back to their island, a nearly backbreaking task essential for the survival of these people and their land
Onibaba by Kaneto Shindō( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in Japanese and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Onibaba is set during a brutal period in history, a JApan ravaged by civil war between rival shogunates. Weary from combat, samurai are drawn towards the seven-foot-high susuki grass fields to hide and rest themselves, only to be ambused and murdered by a ruthless team of mother and daugther-in-law. When Hachi, a neighbour, returning from the wars, brings bad news, he threatens the women's partnership
