9780826439017: Politics, Porn and Protest: Japanese Avant-Garde Cinema in the 1960s and 1970s

Out of a background of war, occupation and the legacies of Japan's post-defeat politics there emerged a dissentient group of avant-garde filmmakers who created a counter-cinema that addressed a newly constituted, politically conscious audience. While there was no formal manifesto for this movement and the various key filmmakers of the period (Oshima Nagisa, Imamura Shohei, Yoshida Yoshishige, Hani Susumu, Wakamatsu Koji and Okamoto Kihachi) experimented with very different conceptions of visual style, it is possible to identify a sensibility that motivated many of these filmmakers: a generational consciousness based on political opposition that was intimately linked to the student movements of the 1950s, and shared experiences as Japan's first generation of post-war filmmakers artistically stifled by a monopolistic and hierarchal commercial studio system that had emerged reinvigorated in the wake of the 'red purges' of the late-1940s. Politics, Porn and Protest: Japanese Avant-Garde Cinema in the 1960s and 1970s provides a much needed overview of these filmmakers and reconsiders the question of dissent in the cultural landscape of Japan in the post-war period.

About the Author:

Isolde Standish is a Senior Lecturer in Film and Media Studies at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London.

Review:

Although this book is primarily about film, Isolde Standish has woven into it a vivid, and very gripping, social, political and cultural history of 1960s' Japan. She traces the struggle that was taking place over the narrative of post-war Japanese history: the 'official story' and its reflection in mainstream studio output against which directors such as Oshima, Yoshida and Imamura reacted bitterly. These and other directors developed avant-garde cinematic and narrative strategies to confront the repression of the past as well as the repressive nature of the state in occupied Japan. Isolde Standish places the development of the avant-garde within its contemporary intellectual context, (including the influence of French thought and literature), the complex politics of the left and the diversifications of the film industry as it faced economic decline. The book is remarkable for the author's mastery of the subject, the clarity of her arguments and the depth of her scholarship. Rarely does one read a book in which the pieces of the jig-saw fall so precisely and illuminatingly into place.

—Laura Mulvey, Professor of Film and Media Studies, Birkbeck University of London
