|dc.description.abstract||Chapter one of this thesis contains a short introduction to pre-colonial and colonial Korean history and prewar and postwar Resident Korean history.
Chapter two, after giving a brief description of Japanese victim consciousness and how it was spread throughout Japan through melodrama films, delves into the history of late 1950s and early 1960s films created by leftist humanist Japanese directors. These films depict diluted Resident Korean characters whose primary purpose is to reflect the positive qualities of the Japanese characters who appear in the films while more serious aspects of Resident Korean history remain absent.
Chapter three of this thesis takes a close look at Matsuda Masao’s and Adachi Masao’s theory of landscape and uses it to show how marginalized individuals such as the non-Korean serial killer Nagayama Norio, the original subject for the theory of landscape, and the white-robed Resident Koreans in an early Ōshima Nagisa documentary film are controlled by Japanese political power that manifests itself in homogenous landscape that was an ubiquitous presence throughout late 1960s and early 1970s Japan.
The fourth chapter of this thesis concerns itself with the diagram of the microphysics of power which is embedded within Japan’s homogeneous landscape and is responsible for both the creation and death of individuals like the previously mentioned Nagayama Norio and the Resident Korean Ri Chin’ U and his filmic representative R in Ōshima’s Death by Hanging.||en_AU|
