Momotaro, Sacred Sailors Film Poster


The first feature-length animated work produced in Japan, this was a propaganda film produced near the end of the Second World War at the behest of the Ministry of the Navy. It tells the story of a group of animals who travel from Mount Fuji while a Japanese squadron flies over an island which is being descended upon by parachutists.
