Synopsis >

Koji Wakamatsu's epic docudrama explores the political unrest of 1960s Japan when mass student uprisings coincided with the beginnings of the far-left United Red Army group, which tortured and murdered its deviant members during a 1972 training session. This is an uncompromising piece of filmmaking from one of Japan's most controversial filmmakers, with a score by American musician (an ex-Sonic Youth member) Jim O'Rourke.
