Japan's War in Colour DVD

SKU ID #87590
It has been widely assumed that the Japanese made no color films before the arrival of American forces in 1945. In recent years, however, scholars have discovered rare color footage from Japan dating back to 1931. This enlightening documentary offers a new perspective on Japanese culture, featuring footage from Manchuria in the early 1930s, domestic Japanese scenes in the years leading up to war, and films of the brutal occupation of Shanghai in 1941. The special features presented here include excerpts from the diary of a Japanese soldier, color shots of the devastation in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and much more.
