Directed by Yoshimitsu Banno
1971, Japan, 85 min
Japanese with English subtitles

February 14th screening introduced by Matthew Maslanka, one of the founding members of the Godzilla Society of North America.

Intended to address the crisis levels of pollution in postwar Japan, Godzilla vs. Hedorah finds the King of the Monsters fighting an alien life form that arrives on Earth and steadily grows by feeding on industrial waste. Director Yoshimitsu Banno infuses the film with equal parts ecological horror, humorous monster antics, and sixties psychedelia straight out of San Francisco.

Plays with: Bambi Meets Godzilla / Directed by Marv Newland, 1969, USA, 1:36 min / The funniest underground short film ever made.
