Where:
Centennial Hall Room G01
Description:

Japanese Cinema Club presents Nagisa Oshima's Death by Hanging. The film uses black humor and Brecht's epic theater to question the moral validity of capital punishment and ethnic prejudice. Central themes include guilt, justice, free will, poverty, the psychological roots of destructive behavior, and the Japanese oppression of Koreans. This screening is the fourth in a series of Japanese new wave films being shown in an attempt to connect the Texas State audience with the art, history, and development of modern Japanese society.
