A young prostitute is sent to the Manchurian border during the Sino-Japanese War to service the soldiers by day and the officers by night. She falls in love with a young soldier who deserts, leading to a series of misfortunes, including the capture of the couple by the Chinese. Seijun Suzuki’s 1965 feature, said to be both antimilitaristic and antinationalistic, stars Tamio Kawachi and Yumiko Nogawa. Mary Brinton, associate professor of sociology at the University of Chicago, will introduce the screening with a discussion of the role of women in Japanese society.
