Directed by Daisuke Itô
Japan, 1926


Chokon depicts the tragic lives of two brothers in the late Edo period; the title is a word borrowed from the Chinese, meaning “the grudge that one cannot forget.” Only the last reel of this feature survives, but even a fragment vividly demonstrates Daisuke Ito’s visual style.
