Black Emperor,” a short 1976 documentary about a Japanese motorcycle youth subcultureIn the 1970s, a youth subculture of anti-establishment motorcycle clubs emerged in Japan called bōsōzoku that’s still raging to this day, albeit in smaller numbers.
Mitsuo Yanagimachi’s short 16mm documentary “God Speed You!
Black Emperor” is a fascinating and fun look into this tribe through the story of a member of the Black Emperors club.
And yes, the film title was the source of the Canadian experimental rock band ‘s name.
Just look at how most of us handle our toothbrush.
