THE EMPEROR’S NAKED ARMY MARCHES ON
Long revered as one of the greatest Japanese documentaries ever made, in The Emperor’s Naked Army Marches Hara follows the steadfast efforts by WWII veteran Kenzo Okuzaki, as he attempts to reveal atrocities committed during his time with the Japanese Army. As he repeatedly faces a country more interested in forgetting, his methods advance at the same time as his agitation.
