日本|1989|120分鐘|彩色|35mm
日語、沖繩語對白,英文字幕
導演:高嶺剛

高嶺剛導演的代表作,以沖繩的民間傳說故事為主軸,細說這個地方的歷史命運,為沖繩電影的敘事模式和對這個地方的幻想帶來了新的可能。夢想與現實、世界和超越這個空間的世界、人與靈魂,都融合在這個故事裏,沖繩將回歸日本之時。

沖繩即將回歸日本,島民分成了回歸派、美軍統治派和獨立派。或許每個人都會因為自己的立場而感到困惑,但他卻不屬於任何一方。他是一個平凡的青年。一天,青年突然獲得了超能力,他接受命運來襲,並化身成為傳說中的俠盜「運玉義留」,而支援獨立派就成了他人生的使命。但他因為愛上世仇西原的養女而受到懲罰,而故事也隨即將要結束。

如多數人的期望,沖繩回歸了。沖繩不再存在,而運玉義留的身影也漸漸消失……

Japan|1989|120 min|Colour|35mm
In Japanese & Okinawan Lauguage with English subtitles
Director: Go Takamine

Representative work by Takamine Go that opens up the possibilities of multiple-voiced narratives and fantasy from Okinawa. Dreams and reality, this world and worlds beyond, man and spirits all mingle in this story set in Okinawa shortly before reversion to the mainland. The story revolves around a feud between protagonist Giru, who had a relationship with the pig incarnation Mare, and Chief Nishihara, who lovingly raised Mare to be a messenger from the Okinawan paradise niraikanai. Using the circular narrative of a dream stolen/ being stolen, the film probes the place of dreams and the era Okinawa was maneuvering through.
