- 2 hr 50 min
Tokyo Olympiad is a sports documentary that was released in 1965. The famed director Kon Ichikawa uses a full camera crew to cover the 1964 Summer Olympics in Tokyo. The documentary covers the Olympics from the opening to the closing of the games. The footage is interesting in that it looks at many different kinds of persons involved in the games. This includes individual spectators, crowds of viewers, and sometimes specific athletes. Some of the footage includes close up views of specific parts of the athletes’ bodies working in a specific race, and another segment of the documentary follows the entire experience of an athlete from Chad.
