Emperor Tomato Ketchup (トマトケチャップ皇帝) is a 1971 Japanese experimental film by poet, artist and director Terayama Shuji (寺山 修司, 1935 – 1983).


A revolutionary brigade of children overthrow the adults and their reign, and a young boy is made Emperor of a new world order. Any hope of change is soon shattered. The children repeat all the mistakes their fathers made, and violence, rape and abuse are inevitable. Enslaved, mothers are turned into prostitutes, “I seduce my mommy and I become my daddy”, is the scarred intent of the new youthful despot. The perpetual cycle of oppression is left unchanged.


Originally, its soundtrack was composed by J. A. Seazer, but the music you are about to listen to is a free interpretation by Italian noise musician SLP. It was first and only performed in Cagliari, Italy, on 16th February 2013, at “Solo Il Mio Nero” noise and film festival.
