On August 12 at Sakurazaka Theatre in Naha City, documentary film “Kamejiro,
the man the U.S. military was most afraid of” (directed by Takahiko Sako) wil
l be preliminarily screened. The documentary is about politician Kamejiro Sena
ga who stood firm in protest against tyranny in Okinawa under US occupation.

The movie explores why citizens in Okinawa, where U.S. military bases remain c
oncentrated even 45 years after reversion, continue to raise their voice, carr
ying on Senaga’s “unyielding” spirit.

Since becoming a news presenter on TBS’s “Tsukushi Tetsuya News 23,” 20 yea
rs ago, Sako has continued covering the base issues in Okinawa. He re-edited a
documentary program broadcasted on TBS in August 2016, including new episodes
revealed by further investigation, and made it into a movie.

After a preliminary screening in Okinawa, it will be screened in Tokyo on Augu
st 26.
