Nagisa Ōshima’s Ceremony at Anthology Film Archives

儀式 (GISHIKI) / Nagisa Ōshima, 1971

From Anthology Film Archives:

Widely acclaimed as Nagisa Oshima’s most ambitious film, THE CEREMONY takes as its subject the entire history of postwar Japan, as embodied by the fortunes of the powerful Sakurada family from 1946 to the present. Through the eyes of the family’s Manchurian-born heir apparent, we move through a dense, flashback-punctuated procession of weddings and funerals that escalates into a vertiginous indictment of the madness of contemporary Japan.
