PROOF OF THE MAN
1977/Jun’ya Sato/132 min.
A mystery like no other, Proof of the Man spans two continents and 40 years going back and forth between Tokyo and New York. When a black American visitor to Japan is killed in 1977 the murder investigation uncovers embarrassing and deadly secrets that go back to the Occupation Army of the late 1940’s. A mixture of top Japanese and American film stars join together to solve the crime, going only on two clues… The words “Straw Hat” and a volume of poetry dating back to 1947.
