Alexander Street Press is moving into streaming video in a big way. They
contracted with Jeannette Paulson (former director of Hawaii Film Festival)
to stream all the films she's had on her own website. There are a few
decent Japanese films in there.

And now they have a new newsreel collection that has most of Nippon News
from 1940's first edition to the end of the war. There are even
translations on the side, and when you click a given paragraph you jump to
that point in the film. It's breathtaking when I think of the lengths to
which I went to watch this stuff back in the early 1990s.
