First, Japanese filmmaker Shohei Imamura explores life on the lower rungs in "Pigs and Battleships" (1961), where a Japanese port town acting as host to an American naval base is populated by morally bankrupt citizens like the young Kinta (Hiroyuki Nagato), who boasts of his status as a hog seller for the black market. Irreverent film co-stars Jitsuko Yoshimura, Tetsuro Tamba. AKA: "The Flesh Is Hot." Next, "Insect Woman" (1963) is a stinging portrait of Tome (Sachiko Hidari), whose dysfunctional relations with her father lead her to many punishing hardships. Emiko Aizawa, Sachiko Hidari co-star. Finally, "Intentions of Murder" (1964) grow inside Sadako (Masumi Harukawa) after being repeatedly raped by a household intruder. Can this working-class woman rescue herself from a grim fate?
