self-introduction and a question

Kino International has the rights to The Emperor's Naked Army Marches On. (It
was my first acquistion ever when I worked there back in the eighties.) They
have 16mm prints and should have a VHS or two for reference. Call Kino at
(212) 629-6880 and ask for Jessica Rosner.

I have just joined the KineJapan list. I am a new Assistant Professor at
Wesleyan University. My research area is premodern Japanese literature,
but my teaching interests are fairly broad; I am hoping to offer a course
this coming spring called "Japanese Film," "Japan" in Film -- it will
consider both films "made in Japan" and films made outside Japan which
take "Japan" as their topic. I am currently trying to put this course
together, and am having some trouble locating a number of hard-to-find
works. If anyone has any tips to share, I would be very grateful.
The films I'm looking for are:
- Kazuo Hara, director; The Emperor's Naked Army Marches On (1987)
- Hirotaka Tashiro, director; Swimming in Tears (Japanese title: Afureru
Atsui Namida, 1992)
- Godzilla, the original Japanese version from 1954 with subtitles, not
the 1956 American remake "Godzilla, King of the Monsters" -- directed by
I need all of the above with English subtitles and in videotape format.
Thank you very much in advance for any assistance.
