    I think this’ll be of interest to users on this site. As many know, Kurosawa participated in a 1946 Toho film called “Those Who Make Tomorrow,” which he co-directed with two other people. This film is incredibly obscure and doesn’t appear to be available on any home media platform. But there is some great information out there from sources such as Donald Richie, Stuart Galbraith IV, and Kyoko Hirano, which is compiled into this article here. Details on the film’s story, why it was made, and the greater context surrounding it.

    Great article, thanks for sharing. Fascinating that in order to promote freedom of speech and expression the US imposed total media censorship.

    Who said, “consistency is the hobgoblin of small minds?”

    Thanks for reading! Yeah, the occupation was a big, convoluted mess full of self-contradictions and rapidly changing agendas.
