Introspection Tower
(Mikaheri no tô)

by Hiroshi SHIMIZU


Daily life in reformatory for troubled children, with its brawls, fugues and disobediences. Featuring the outstanding Chishu Ryu and based on the notebooks of the director of an Osaka reformatory, edited by the novelist Yoshio Toyoshima.

Alongside Children of the Beehive, its sequel, Children of the Beehive: What Happened Next,and Children of the Great Buddha, this Introspection Towerprobably remains the most compelling evidence of the filmmaker’s attentiveness to the margins of Japanese society and his work with children. Shimizu donated some of his own money to shelter and support orphans of World War II. JB
