Throw away your books, rally in the streets : the relationship between intellectuals and masses in Terayama Shuji's cinema
Vargas, Ferran de (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona)

Data: 2018
Resum: Terayama Shuji is as important counterculturally to the late 1960s and early 1970s as the philosopher Yoshimoto Takaaki was intellectually. Through the analysis of Terayama's film Throw Away Your Books, Rally in the Streets (Sho o Suteyo, Machi e Deyo), this paper explores a premise little discussed in publications in English so far: namely, that the existentialist emphasis of this director's cinema on the self-questioning subject, its transformation through action over circumstances and discourse, linked to its emancipatory spirit, allows him to connect his approaches with the ideology of the most libertarian sectors of the Japanese New Left during Japan's 1960s 'season of politics'.
Nota: This paper is based on the research that was undertaken for the doctoral dissertation 'La Nūberu Bāgu como correlato artístico de la Nueva Izquierda japonesa'
