Program Description

Dir. Nagisa Ôshima 1983123 min 35mm  With David Bowie, Tom Conti and Ryûichi Sakamoto David Bowie stars as Celliers, a high-ranking British officer interned in a Japanese POW camp, in this captivating World War II drama. His arrival at the camp, and a commander’s obsession with the blonde officer, throws off the delicate balance between the prisoners and guards, bringing each side’s culture and concept of honor into question. A brutal, emotional, and multilayered look at the consequences of war, the film is a considered to be a highlight in Ôshima’s oeuvre, which includes as Night and Fog in Japan, Death by Hanging and In the Realm of the Senses.
