FULL SYNOPSIS

Noted Japanese documentary director [[Performer~P190453~Kazuo Hara~kazuohara]] makes an obsessive, compelling film about Takeda Miyuki, his former lover. Drawn by her letters, he goes to Okinawa and documents this remarkably strong-willed woman as she has a relationship with an African-American soldier, bears their interracial child alone, and discusses the director's shortcomings with Hara's producer and lover, [[Performer~P191216~Sachiko Kobayashi~sachikokobayashi]]. This film is a landmark in the development of Japanese documentaries, as it began a shift in perspective from collective films about social issues, as seen in [[Performer~P394842~Shinsuke Ogawa~shinsukeogawa]]'s early works, to intensely personal works about individuals. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi
