"Yoshishige Yoshida, also known as Kiju Yoshida, is by any name one of the masters of the Japanese New Wave, combining a pioneer’s explorative drive with an incisive political mind to forge a body of work that dug deep into his nation’s complicated history in order to explain its troubled present. Nowhere is this more evident than in Yoshida’s trilogy of films chronicling a history of radical sects in Japan. Taken altogether, these films offer an X-ray view of the Japanese body politic—and an ultra-rare opportunity for a New York audience to catch up with one of the country’s greatest living filmmakers."—Metrograph
