Ophanging [Koshikei] (Oshima)

Death by Hanging

Koshikei | Nagisa Oshima

A young Korean is sentenced to hang for the murder of two high school girls. The compelling trial leading to the death penalty and its cruel ritual, but also an indictment of the discrimination against Koreans in Japan. A bold and brazen political statement.
