Due to his PhD (dedicated to Kaiju Eiga, BTW :wink: ) Jonathan Belles delayed the release of his documentary, but has been working on it steadily during the last 5 years. This is the new trailer:

Oh, well...that doesn’t help me.

I mean, no offense, but I don’t speak any of those languages.

Cool for our Spanish-speaking friends but I would have to sidestep this one.

Yeah, hopefully there will be English subtitles at some point so I can check this out. It looks promising.


There are already so many Japanese documentaries that I can't fully appreciate without an English translation.

Tokyo Weekender April 8, 2019:
New Godzilla Documentary Explores Link Between “Kaiju Eiga” Monsters and the Atomic Bomb
AGUSTIN MILLAN wrote:In the 65 years since the Godzilla first emerged from the ocean as a byproduct of the underwater nuclear testing in Ishiro Honda’s 1954 masterpiece Gojira, the giant lizard has become an icon of the atomic era.

Recognized by Guinness World Records as the longest-running film franchise, Godzilla has appeared in more than 30 films and a ridiculous number of video games, comic books and TV shows.

Young Spanish filmmaker Jonathan Bellés was inspired to create the documentary The Dawn of Kaiju Eiga, which explores the relationship between the atomic bomb and the birth of Godzilla and fellow kaiju eiga monsters like Mothra, Megalon and the bionic Mechagodzilla.

Bellés conducted interviews with more than 23 Japanese artists that have shaped the cultural icon for well over six decades, including Akira Takarada, star of Honda’s original film.

Bellés presented his documentary at an exclusive premiere at Instituto Cervantes Tokyo on April 2 and spoke with TW about the long-lasting appeal of Japan’s pioneering monster.
