This is a 14" x 22" Belgian poster for the 1960 Kaneto Shindo
96-minute black-and-white film The Naked Island (original
Japanese title Hadaka no shima) written by Kaneto Shindo and
starring Nobuko Otowa as Toyo, the mother. Plot summary: This is a
film with no dialogue depicting the arduous struggles of a family of
four, a mother, father and two sons, who are the only inhabitants of a
tiny island in the Seto Inland Sea. The family survives by farming
and gets the water for its crops and animals each day by fetching it
in a rowboat, four buckets per trip, from a nearby island's irrigation
canals. Director Kaneto himself later admitted the film's premise of
watering a crop manually by rowboat is false, because this would not
have been necessary to support the sweet potato crop shown under
cultivation in the film. Even so, The Naked Island won the
grand prize in 1961 at the Second Moscow International Film Festival
and according to the director's account as reported in Wikipedia, it
was also a financial success which saved his company, Kindai Eiga
Kyokai, from bankruptcy.
