The Second Sino-Japanese War in Toy Films
Director: OTA Yoneo (太田米男)
|3/15 Tue||15:40||ABC Hall|
The Second Sino-Japanese War in a Toy Film brings the hidden shadows of the Showa Period to the silver screen as documentary and propaganda footage of the battlefields of China collected from a number of sources are knit together to give a new perspective on history.
Following the enthusiastic response to the 38-minute version of The Second Sino-Japanese War in a Toy Film at last year’s Kyoto International Film and Art Festival, Professor OTA Yoneo has re-edited it to make a 94-minute work which will be given a special screening at OAFF with a live piano performance delivered by YANASHITA Mie, a pioneer in the art of silent film musical accompaniment.
