In August 1967, Japan’s Art Theatre Guild opened the Theatre Scorpio (Sasoriza), an exhibition space dedicated to underground films and live performances, in the basement of its Art Theatre Shinjuku Bunka flagship cinema in Tokyo’s lively artistic hub of Shinjuku. (...) The venue’s inaugural run was Galaxy, an elliptical journey into a young man’s subconscious that represented the first feature-length work by Adachi Masao. Best known for his collaborations with the pink filmmaker Wakamatsu Koji and his subsequent involvement with the radical Japanese Red Army, Adachi was one of the rising stars of the burgeoning experimental filmmaking scene, and Galaxy was greeted with packed attendances.
