The Emperor’s Naked Army Marches On

Kazuo Hara, Japan/Indonesia 1987, 122 min.

There aren't many choices available for Thai cinephiles, as most cinemas here are multiplexes which screen lookalike blockbuster films. As a distributor and cinema, we try to create alternatives, especially for documentary films. Our ongoing focus is on the classics. Kazuo Hara’s films have always been of interest because of the way they deal with social issues. His most infamous work, The Emperor’s Naked Army Marches On, shows just how controversial and confrontational documentaries can be. The film examines the historical amnesia that continues to plague Japanese society until today. After the screening we always have a discussion and believe this film will spark conversation in the audience about the subject and Hara’s method of making documentaries.

Thanaphon Accawatanyu of Documentary Club

Documentary Club was founded in 2014. We are a community of people working in visual media bringing great documentaries from around the world to the Thai market. We strongly believe that through film, people can gain a better understanding of the world around them, which consequently inspires creative social change. Documentary Club is not just a project that aims to introduce people to documentary film, it is also a club for people to share their diverse interests in arts, culture, and society. We focus on both entertaining and inspiring documentaries, hosting talks and events to broaden participants’ perspectives. Furthermore, we organize a cinema called Doc Club & Pub. Opened in 2021, we hope it will create a space not just for films but for art and culture.
