Masao Adachi

Masao Adachi (足立正生 Adachi Masao, born May 13, 1939 in Fukuoka Prefecture) is a Japanese screenwriter and director who was most active in the 1960s and 1970s.


Best known for his writing collaborations with directors Kōji Wakamatsu and Nagisa Oshima, often under the pseudonyms "Izuru Deguchi" or "De Deguchi" (出口出), he also directed a number of his own films, usually dealing with left-wing political themes.[1] He stopped making films in the early 1970s and joined the Japanese Red Army, an armed militant organization. After residing in Lebanon for 28 years, he was arrested for passport violations. He was found guilty of passport violations in September 2001 and received a four-year sentence, suspended to 18 months. After his release he was deported to Japan via Jordan, where he was re-arrested on other passport violations. After being held for a year and a half he was convicted and released based on the time he had already served. Since his release, he has resumed making films after a 30 year absence.[2]
