A videogame-inspired film that's quite unlike any other, this thought-provoking piece from visionary filmmaker Chris Marker uses the concept of a game based on real events to explore our relationship to history, and how technology distorts the past even as it makes it accessible. Writer Laura is grieving for her dead lover and is determined to finish the game he created; this leads her to research the horrors of the battle for Okinawa in the Second World War, during which Japanese civilians were encouraged to take their own lives rather than submit to American forces.
This companion to Flags of Our Fathers tells the story of the WWII battle for the Pacific island of Iwo Jima from the point of view of the Japanese.
