A similar retrospective was held in Turin last Winter. It was also published
a short booklet on Kato Tai, "Il cinema di Kato Tai", ed. by Yamane Sadao
and Hasumi Shigehiko, 15 Festival Internazionale Cinema Giovani, 1997, in
Italian, including the complete filmography of Kato's works and some short
essays by Yamane Sadao, Kato Tai, Hasumi Shigehiko and Ueno Koshi. If you
can read Italian, there's another interesting reference to Kato Tai (three
chapters!) in "Schermi giapponesi. La tradizione e il genere", Venezia,
Marsilio Editore, 1984.

I hope it helps.
