Mishima's The Rite of Love and Death (1966) features a loyal Japanese army lieutenant, Shinki Takeyama and this young wife, Reiko, during their last erotic moments before committing ritual suicide together. Based on the shocking failed coup attempt in 1936, this short dramatic film is widely regarded as Mishima's practice run for his own highly anachronistic and sensational suicide in 1970.

This three day event focusing on the French filmmaker Alice Guy-Blanché consists of a series of symposiums and film showings taking place in the Washington, D.C. area.
