Prisoner/Terrorist
Masao Adachi, 2007
Japan | 113 minutes

Due to a problem with the Beta, this film will be shown on DVD. We apologize for the inconvenience.

After an early career spent directing avant-garde youth films and collaborating with fellow firebrands Nagisa Oshima and Koji Wakamatsu, Masao Adachi left his native Japan for Beirut, where he joined the Japanese Red Army. Prisoner/Terrorist, Adachi’s first film in 30 years, is a haunting amalgam of historical narrative, personal testimony, and poetic reverie. Imprisoned after participating in an airport massacre, an unnamed JRA member suffers a string of abuses, holds imaginary conversations with famous revolutionaries, and dreams fruitlessly of freedom.
