East Asian Film Society Presenting “The 19 Year Old’s Map”

The Uni­ver­si­ty of Hawaii at Manoa East Asian Film Soci­ety will screen the film The 19 Year Old’s Map (1979) as part of its series “The Films of Mit­suo Yanag­i­machi” Thurs­day, Jan­u­ary 20, 2011. The film, in Japan­ese with Eng­lish sub­ti­tles, will be shown at 5:00 p.m. in Sin­clair Library Room 110 on the UH Manoa cam­pus.

The 19 Year Old’s Map fol­lows the sto­ry of a 19-year-old news­pa­per deliv­ery boy who begins col­lect­ing infor­ma­tion on the house­holds in his neigh­bor­hood and keep­ing a jour­nal of why he doesn’t like them. Declar­ing him­self a “right-winger” and call­ing in bomb threats against the neigh­bors he doesn’t like, he begins a war of psy­cho­log­i­cal ter­ror against the fam­i­lies in his neigh­bor­hood.
