"In Japan, WWII Kamikaze are still revered as self-sacrificing heroes. Internationally, they remain a potent symbol of fanaticism. Until now, few outsiders knew that many Kamikaze survived their suicide missions. The candid, heartbreaking testimony of surviving Kamikaze conveys the true depth of war's travesty. Sixty years later, these humble men tell us about the horrors of the cockpit, their dramatic survival and the survivors' guilt still haunting them"--Container

Toru Takemitsu by Charlotte Zwerin( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in Japanese and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tōru Takemitsu (1930-1996), well-known Japanese composer, wrote the scores for some of the most celebrated, seminal works of Japan's New Wave movement, and collaborated with Akira Kurosawa, Nagisa Oshima, Masahiro Shinoda, and Hiroshi Teshigahara--some very obsessive directors. Takemitsu emphasized the sound, images, and textures of natural living things, as he scored power struggles, paranoia, fractured family relations, and the two big subjects that often dominate the films his work accompanies: murder and suicide. Takemitsu's scores feature Japanese instruments and musical concepts, but he also used musician's performance techniques, engineering tweaks, and sometimes specific sound effects, which were performed, recorded, and edited into sharp musical statements for Japanese films that addressed issues heretofore rarely depicted in Japanese cinema. Interviews with Takemitsu, Teshigahara, Shinoda, Kobayashi and Oshima are illustrated with copious clips from their films
