Screening on Film
Directed by Shinsuke Ogawa.
Japan, 1967, 16mm, black & white, 58 min.
In Japanese.

After the explosive success of Forest of Oppression, Jieso organized their next film with a couple labor unions and political activists/filmmakers. Bristling with scenes of clashing protesters and riot police, Ogawa (who appears onscreen) carefully investigates the death of a young protester. The film’s analytical look at the effects of a baton strike on the human brain foreshadow a filmmaking strategy key to their later work.

Please note: this film does not have English subtitles
