If Summer in Sanrizuka is a call-to-arms, The Peasants of the Second Fortress is a call-to-inhabit. In 1971, the resistance to construction persisted, and the film crew embedded with the farmers, settling in one of the villages at the center of the conflict. Digging tunnels and building fortresses to protect against police violence became a way of life. As new worlds took shape on the terrain, the radio tower sounded the message, β€œIn spring the shoots will sprout from the earth. Sanrizuka is still alive.” In Japanese with English subtitles.
