Japan Date:1933 Duration:2 min 3 sec Sound:Yes
Artistic montage of seemingly unrelated scenes. Slates in Japanese overlay scenes of explosions with smoke rising from a volcano. This is followed by high winds and severe thunderstorms with lightning and views of ocean crashing against rocks. A steam locomotive rushes across a steel railroad trestle bridge. Glimpse of a ship's funnel and sound of horn blowing in presence of stormy weather. Glimpse of power plant (or other industrial site) near water, with smoke rising from 5 smoke stacks. Ship's funnel and horn shown again in stormy conditions. Multiple artistic images of a man are overlaid upon each other. Then a momentary view from track level of fast-moving railroad train. A large room filled with enthusiastic young men waving raised hands. View from trackside of speeding locomotive passing close to the camera. The men waving arms, again followed by view of speeding locomotive driving arms and wheels.The men waving their arms are now seen to be inside a room where several men in business suits stand before them. More views of speeding trains interspersed with ocean waters and network of humming electrical communication lines. Panning upward view of a tall smoke stack. Aerial view of narrow isthmus of coastal cliff extending into the sea, accompanied by overlaying slate in Japanese with sounds of strong winds in background.
