    RL if you also have the 2007 Criterion release of Ichikawa’s “The Burmese Harp” (1957/116mins) with interview from Ichikawa himself would be awesome to upload.

    Very interesting anti-war addition, only knew Kon Ichikawa from the ’60s Tokyo Olympiad docu.

      PS: Clint Eastwood Iwojima Hollywood stuff compared to this. Not for the skirmish. No wonder Ichikawa assigned to film the Olympics he’s beyond pacifist, he’s humanist.
