Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Shunya Itō (Itō Shun'ya?, born February 17, 1937) is a Japanese film director famed for starting the Sasori (Female Prisoner #701: Scorpion, etc.) series of 1970s exploitation films starring Meiko Kaji. Itō worked for Toei Company for most of his career. He won a Directors Guild of Japan New Directors Citation for his first film, Female Prisoner #701: Scorpion, in 1972. He won Best Picture at the Japanese Academy Awards in 1985 with his film Gray Sunset, a story of a man suffering from Alzheimer's disease. This thus became Japan's entry for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film instead of Akira Kurosawa's Ran, which caused a slight uproar in Western media as many critics thought Ran had a real chance of winning whereas Gray Sunset was not even shortlisted.
