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.
An uncompromising piece of filmmaking from one of Japan's most controversial filmmakers, Koji Wakamatsu, with a score by American musician (and ex-Sonic Youth member) Jim O'Rourke.
