Nihon University Cinema Club holds a unique and significant role in the history of Japanese experimental film, not only for its association with student politics but also for its explicit stance against authorship. The Club, whose members included Motoharu Jonouchi and Masao Adachi, would present films in unconventional settings, and indeed, Jonouchi would often reedit his films and insist on projecting them in different ways for each screening. Program to include Jonouchi’s WOLS, Tatsumi Hijikata, Gewaltopia Yokokuhen (Gewaltopia trailer) and Shinjuku Station as well as the Nihon University Cinema Club’s collectively produced PuPu.
