Masao Adachi & Koji Wakamatsu Sekigun-PFLP: Sekai Senso Sengen (The Red Army/PFLP: Declaration of World War)

Masao Adachi & Koji Wakamatsu Sekigun-PFLP: Sekai Senso Sengen (The Red Army/PFLP: Declaration of World War) - 1971, 70 min., Co-edited by Red Army (Red Army Faction of Japan Revolutionary Communist League) and PFLP (Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine) at UbuWeb Film & Video. "...In 1971, Koji Wakamatsu and Masao Adachi, both having ties to the Japanese Red Army, stopped in Palestine on their way home from the Cannes festival. There they caught up with notorious JRA ex-pats Fusako Shigenobu and Mieko Toyama in training camps to create a newsreel-style agit-prop film based off of the "landscape theory" (f√Ľkeiron) that Adachi and Wakamatsu had developed. The theory, most evident at work in A.K.A. Serial Killer (1969), aimed to move the emphasis of film from situations to landscapes as expression of political and economical power relations."
