THE EMPEROR'S NAKED ARMY MARCHES ON

Provocative and disturbing, this is the true story of Kenzo Okuzaki, an eccentric auto mechanic whose obsession is to discover the truths behind rumors of cannibalism among members of a Japanese army regiment at the end of World War II. As both private eye and prosecutor, he uncovers an astonishing, truly shocking instance of wartime murder hidden in the mysteries of Japanese social decorum. A sort of kamikaze filmmaking, THE EMPEROR'S NAKED ARMY MARCHES ON continues to rack up rave reviews on the international film festival circuit.
