ALC Invited Lecture
"THE FEELING OF FREEDOM: JAPANESE AND AMERICAN WARTIME FILMS ON THE LIBERATION OF THE PHILIPPINES, 1943-45"
Prof. Takashi Fujitani, Department of History, University of Toronto.
June 28 (Wed) 3-5 PM, Shinyang Humanities Hall (Bldg. no. 4), room 302.


ABSTRACT
This presentation analyzes Japanese and American filmic representations of the liberation of the Philippines during World War II in the Asia-Pacific. The author argues that while the occupations of both these militarized empires disavowed colonialism and came in the name of freedom and self-determination for all peoples, they were very similar attempts to establish a new and postcolonial form of empire that depended upon producing the  feeling that their empires enabled freedom and equality. The talk further explores how the American and Japanese films mobilized the tropes of choice, death, romance and race to produce images of their empires as spaces of freedom and equality.
