Description Technical Specs
Kazuo Hara, who rattled the Japanese establishment with The Emperor's Naked Army Marches On and Goodbye CP, turns his camera on controversial writer Mitsuharu Inoue in this powerful documentary. Originally intending to spend years on the project, Hara was forced to change his plan when he discovered Inoue was dying of cancer. The result is a moving work that captures the essence of this contentious writer's life and the significance of his death. Not only a tribute to a courageous man, A Dedicated Life al so reveals Hara's dedication to outsiders, mavericks, and nonconformists. "Riveting viewing...extremely moving" (Variety). In Japanese with English subtitles.
