"an individual, and total life"



Japanese Red Army film, nominally about a plane hijacking, for your viewing pleasure over at Ubuweb: Masao Adachi & Kôji Wakamatsu's Sekigun-PFLP: Sekai Senso Sengen (The Red Army/PFLP: Declaration of World War) [1971]. Adachi and Wakamatsu are part of the fûkeiron crew that made the quite incredible A.K.A. Serial Killer. Old school experimental propaganda.

Thank you for bringing this to my attention, it should be very interesting to watch. I think it should be watched alongside The Man Who Left His Will On Film by Oshima Nagisa, which was a response the the self-defeating infantilism of the student revolutionaries, and to the 'landscape theory' which is cinematically analogous to a deterministic fixation on object conditions.

Thanks for the reference back. Love to put on a double screening of these. I know the political and cinematic context of the landscape theory debate only tangentially, but I start to think there's something seriously worth pursuing there.
