Japanese Cinema Club presents Kō Nakahira's Crazed Fruit. The Nikkatsu film initiated the Sun Tribe (taiyozoku) film movement, depicting a wild and dangerous Japanese youth as a consequence of early postwar capitalism and error. Crazed Fruit was praised by François Truffaut and was the first Japanese film to be recommended to Cinematheque. Central themes include immorality, hedonism, promiscuity, narcissism, anti-authoritarianism, and teenage rebellion. This screening is the ninth of 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.
