The times brought the farmers together with the ‘young Icaruses’ of the new left, the farmers wanting muscle for their organization, and the young volunteers seeking an ignition point for revolution.

  • Review

    When the Japanese government announced to build an airport in Narita in 1966, the local farmers banded together to fight against it. The Wages of Resistance: Narita Stories(2014), screened at the 16th Jeonju International Film Festival, dealt with the process and aftermath of it. Daishima Haruhiko directed its sequel, The Fall of Icarus: Narita Stories, to show the stories of young people who fight with the farmers against the government.
    The 1960s were the time where the young people of the European countries and China, as well as Japan, rebelled to overthrow the system. After the battle had ended in defeat, people forgot about the rebel. However, this film asks what they are doing and if their rebel is still meaningful. While examining the bleak backwater of the past, the film gives hope soaring from the bottom.
