나리타 시리즈의 네 번째 이야기. 나리타 공항 프로젝트에 반대하는 산리즈카 농부들의 투쟁이 3년째 계속되고, 정부와 공항공사는 농지 강제 집행을 진행하고 있다. 불도저와 경찰력을 동원해 농민들의 바리케이트를 파괴해버리고 농민들과 학생들을 무차별 습격하는 공권력에 맞서 마을의 여성들은 바리케이트에 서로 몸을 묶고 “우리가 여기 있다. 우리 땅과 함께 우리를 죽여라!” 하고 외친다.
This is the fourth of the 7-part Sanrizuka series by director OGAWA Shinsuke and it documents ‘discussion’. It was filmed in 1971, which was the fifth year into the Sanrizuka farmers’ protest against the construction of the airport and protect their land and also the year when the first large scale administrative execution of expropriation of land took place. This, of course, meant the fierce clashes with the riot police that resembled war scenes were documented, but the strongest point of this movie is in the way it portrays the lively discussion among the male and female farmers of various generations preparing to fight on what direction to take and how to fight.
While Summer in Narita, the first of the 7-part series produced in 1968, features the younger generation getting frustrated with the older generation who want to depend on college students that have come to support them and claiming they should arm themselves and take charge, this movie shows us how all the farmers think and act like the active protagonists of the fight. The women who, at times, actually seem to have a good time are impressive. What they demonstrate when they argue that they should fight in person instead of using bamboo spears like the old men insist is that being armed cannot be converted into an issue of weapons. The Sanrizuka struggle of opposing the construction of the airport in itself is not one of active content. However, 5 years of evolving produced a new community, or even a new world. I want to think about that new world which is not visible to the naked eye as I relish the exhilaration of the last scene.
