Ōshima Nagisa and Zengakuren

This just in from Sally Suzuki:

Last night I watched for the first time Ōshima Nagisa’s 1960 classic, Nihon no yoru to kiri. Though I couldn't find the film anywhere online, I did happen to come across a few related videos which I thought might interest you.

1. Ōshima Nagisa’s 1968 film Kōshikei (Death by Hanging), in ten parts.

2. The first ten minutes of Nagisa Oshima’s 100 years of Japanese Film, presented by the British Film Institute.

3. This 1993 Fuji TV documentary about the Zengakuren (Japanese Communist Faction), in 7 parts.

4. This TV Asahi documentary about the collapse of the Rengō Sekigun (United Red Army) and the Asama-Sansō incident, in 6 parts.

That is all I have for now. Hope you find it useful.
