The Anabasis of May and Fusako Shigenobu, Masao Adachi, and 27 Years Without Images

Directed by Eric Baudelaire
2011, 1hr 6min

 

Baudelaire contemplates the complexities of recounting and representing history, through the recollections of radical filmmaker Masao Adachi & daughter of the founder of the United Red Army, May Shigenobu, two figures whose intertwined journeys took them from Japan to to work with the Palestinian Liberation Front in Lebanon. Told over images of present-day Tokyo and Beirut, and employing Adachi’s theory of landscape film, “Each shot is charged with these collisions of past-present-future, all which indicate losses: of political movements, artistic practice, and entire lives.” (Film Comment).
