Filed under: resources — Tags: , — okinawacollection @ 7:00 AM

A Japanese film titled Okinawa 1965 was released in 2017. The homepage of the film describes that there are 3 keywords for this documentary: (1) the march for the reversion of Okinawa to Japan, (2) Awagon Shōkō’s (阿波根昌鴻) non-violent peace movement, (3) a former US Marine Allen Nelson’s “Okinawa doesn’t need US bases.”

*Caveat: The trailer on the above site has some disturbing image of a young girl killed by the military vehicle.  

Closed caption is available in Japanese by clicking CC on the landing page.
