Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Noriaki Tsuchimoto (Tsuchimoto Noriaki?) (11 December 1928, Gifu Prefecture, Japan - 24 June 2008) was a Japanese documentary film director known for his films on Minamata disease and examinations of the effects of modernization on Asia. Tsuchimoto and Shinsuke Ogawa have been called the "two figures tower over the landscape of Japanese documentary." Tsuchimoto was born in Gifu Prefecture, but raised in Tokyo. Angered by the emperor system that led Japan into war, he participated in radical student groups like Zengakuren when he entered Waseda University and joined the Japanese Communist Party. For a time he was even involved in the JCP's plan for armed revolt in the mountains and also was arrested for participating in protests.show more
