The Targeted Village


 ■Notes Takae,

Okinawa. As residents resist the construction of helipads that threaten to encircle their village, they are indicated by their government for obstructin. We come to know the shocking truth that during the Vietnam War, Takae villagers were forced to participate in U.S. guerilla warfare training exercises as proxies for Vietnamese villagers. In their struggle against the deployment of the Osprey helicopter, Okinawans completely blockaded the Futenma base. Nevertheless, the aircraft was deployed as planned. Produced by Ryukyu Asahi Broadcasting, this film is a direct statement of the Okinawan people’s sadness and fury before the American and Japanese states.


■Short Synopsis

In Okinawa, the people of Takae village are convicted by the Japanese government for obstructing traffic in their struggle against the construction of new helipads. Their story embodies U.S. military strategy dating back to the Vietnam War, the blocking of the gates to the Futenma base, and their town’s rage against their state.
