  • Throw Away Your Books Get Out onto the Streets/Throw Away Your Books, Let’s Go into the Street

    1971. Japan. Written and directed by Shuji Terayama. With Eimei Sasaki, Masahiro Saito, Yukiko Kobayashi. Terayama’s Art Theater Guild debut is a breathtaking collage of words transformed into street actions and art happenings—a devilishly disjointed urban narrative loosely held together by a coming-of-age drama. Print lent by the National Film Center of The National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo; courtesy Toho Distribution. In Japanese; English subtitles. 119 min.
