Mika Ninagawa was once a successful and much-awarded photographer who made the occasional music video or movie. There was a five-year gap between her 2007 debut feature, the period drama “Sakuran,” and her 2012 showbiz drama “Helter Skelter.” Next was a seven-year hiatus until her 2019 horror-fantasy “Diner.”

But Ninagawa quickly followed up “Diner” with the 2019 Osamu Dazai biopic “No Longer Human,” and has since finished her first Netflix series, the nine-part “Followers,” which will drop on Feb. 27. She is an “occasional” director no longer.
