Death by Hanging © New Yorker Films.

The first film planned and produced by ATG, Oshima's subversive and provocatively absurd reconstruction of the murder crime of a young Korean man, who is executed but refuses to die, is an ingeniously conceived farce on intolerance, assimilation and capital punishment.

1968, 117 min., 35mm, b&w. Directed by Nagisa Oshima. With Kei Sato, Fumio Watanabe and Masao Adachi. Print courtesy of New Yorker Films.
