Storyline

In 1981, the young Japanese Issei Sagawa murdered a Dutch student in Paris and ate part of his body. Declared as mentally ill, he did not face a normal trial, and after spending two years in a French clinic, he returned to Japan. There he wrote a book, published a manga about his crime and even appeared in pornography. In an attempt to unravel the dark motives that led him to cannibalism, the anthropologists and filmmakers Véréna Paravel and Lucien Castaing-Taylor, perform in Caniba, his third full-length film, an atypical and sensory portrait of Sagawa, who more than 35 years of the events in Paris, lives suffering from a paralysis that keeps him partially immobilized.
