*The Emperor’s Naked Army Marches O*n (Japan, 1987, Hara Kazuo), Thursday
October 19, 7 pm in Newton 204.
Part of Cultural Harmony Week
This absorbing documentary follows Kenzo Okuzaki--a veteran of Japan's WWII
campaign in New Guinea--as he searches out those
responsible for the mysterious deaths of several soldiers in his unit.
Though he holds Emperor Hirohito accountable for all the suffering
caused by WWII, he painstakingly tracks down former military officers and
accuses them of specific war crimes, often times abusing
them verbally and physically. Director Kazua Hara's subtle cinéma vérité
not only captures the zeal of Okuzaki's lifelong mission, but
also exposes the atrocities committed by the Japanese military against its
own soldiers. Presented by Brooke McCorkle, Visiting
Assistant Professor of Music. PRESENTED IN ASSOCIATION WITH CULTURAL
