A documentary about Kamejiro Senaga, the man who resisted America in U.S.-occupied Okinawa.
Okinawan opposition to U.S. military presence today draws its voice from him.
Following Japan’s defeat in World War II, one man fearlessly continued to stand up to U.S. military occupation of Okinawa. He was Kamejiro Senaga, a hero with an indefatigable spirit of resistance, capable of drawing tens of thousands of people to him, and firing them up with his speeches. The U.S. military feared him and looked to quiet him somehow, but Kamejiro continued the fight, first as Naha mayor, and then as a national diet assemblyman. Using actual footage and interviews with such people as Kamejiro’s daughter and former Okinawa governor, Keiichi Inamine, the untold story of Kamejiro Senaga, a man of deep conviction and passion, comes to life in this documentary film.
