Summary
Features fellow Japanese 'New Wave' director Nagisa Oshima, who traveled to the Yamagata countryside to visit the Ogawa Productions collective during the filming of "A Japanese Village, Furuyashikimura", a feature-length documentary chronicling the seasonal cycle of rice growing. Shows the two filmmakers engaged in a wide-ranging discussion that offers a rare insight into Ogawa's social and cinematic philosophy. Ogawa Productions' approach to documentary filmmaking is that of self-styled "film nomads" who live and work for extended periods of time in various regions of the country-focusing in particular on their current production, which involves an intimate interaction over a period of several years with local farmers, weather conditions, the environment, and aspects of village life. As the film reveals, Ogawa Productions' in-depth portraits of Japanese society, whether of protest movements or traditional agricultural life, grew out of an unusual commitment to integrate themselves with the communities they filmed, to the extent that their filmmaking literally became an alternative lifestyle
