Yoshida’s dense and self-reflexive film about the anarchist Sakae Osugi, who was killed in the wake of the great Kanto earthquake of 1923, explores the obscure intersection between reality and fiction, history and memory, anxiety and revolution in the wake of the collapsed left movement.

1970, 167 min., 35mm, b&w. Directed by Yoshishige (Kiju) Yoshida. With Mariko Okada, Toshiyuki Hosokawa and Yuko Kusunoki. Print courtesy of The Japan Foundation with permission from Gendai Eigasha.
