The word “report” in the film’s title is a reference to the meticulousness that Ogawa and his collaborators aimed for while trying to learn the circumstances surrounding the death of the student Yamazaki during street clashes with the police in Haneda. This meticulousness applies to the gathering of information as much as to the visually captivating images and details.

“The basis of documentary directing is elimination – as compared to, for instance, photography, which is about discovering. That is a fundamental contrast. When a director on location insists on discovering things, then the film will never be over.“ S. Ogawa
