Tokyo 2021 – summer olympic games

The Olympic motto Citius, Altius, Fortius  –  Latin for Faster, Higher, Stronger
The symbol of the Olympic Games is composed of five interlocking rings, coloured blue, yellow, black, green, and red on a white field. This was originally designed in 1912 by Baron Pierre de Coubertin

1965 – 170 minutes – Color – Japan
Specially commissioned by the Japanese government in order to present a new, post-World War II image of Japan to the world, this epic was directed by Kon Ichikawa and is considered a milestone in documentary filmmaking. Kon Ichikawa’s Tokyo Olympiad ranks among the greatest documents of sport ever committed to film. Utilizing glorious widescreen cinematography, Ichikawa examines the beauty and rich drama on display at the 1964 Summer Games in Tokyo, creating a catalogue of extraordinary observations that range from the expansive to the intimate. The glory, despair, passion, and suffering of Olympic competition are rendered with lyricism and technical mastery, culminating in an inspiring testament to the beauty of the human body and the strength of the human spirit. 104 cameras, a few hundred crew,
