Japanese Documentary Film: From the Meiji Era to Hiroshima

Author(s): Abe Markus Nornes

Nornes Japanese Documentary


Among Asian countries—where until recently documentary filmmaking was largely the domain of governments—Japan was exceptional for the vigor of its film industry. And yet, Japanese documentary remains largely unstudied outside of Japan. The first English-language study of the subject, this book provides an enlightening look at the first fifty years of documentary film theory and practice in Japan.
