The most celebrated work by recently deceased Japanese New Wave director Yoshishige Yoshida is a rarely shown landmark of world cinema. Stylishly shot in ‘scope and boasting great visual beauty, Yoshida’s monumental magnum opus tells two parallel stories. One follows the life and loves of 1920s Japanese anarchist and free love advocate Sakae Ōsugi; the other focuses on two 1960s students inspired by Ōsugi’s radical ideas. Director’s cut. Subtitles. DCP. 220 min. www.americangenrefilm.com/theatrical-film-catalog/eros-massacre/
