1940 年東京被選為夏季奧運的主辦城市，但由於二次世界大戰影響及其他爭議，東京主辦權因此終止，而此屆奧運賽事也因戰事開展而延期。直到1964 年，日本再次挑戰奧運之夢，成為奧運首座亞洲主辦城市，再度向全世界證明日本從二次戰敗後，不屈不饒重新站立的能耐。日本大師市川崑受邀拍攝，對於奧運選手不歌功頌德，也不流為官方賽事記錄的宣傳片，運鏡與場面調度展現大師風範，整體敘事強調人道精神與多元文化，成為日本國民集體記憶的重要紀事。
此次影展放映版本為2013 年國際奧林匹克委員會 (International Olympic Committee) 修復之作。本節目由國際奧委會IOC 協力放映。
Tokyo had been selected to host the Summer Games in 1940, but with war on the horizon, the host city had to withdraw. ICHIKAWA treated the 1964 event with an intensely humanist vision, dwelling not just on the effort and commitment of individual athletes but also on the experience of spectators and competitors alike. Using the scope format, his team of cameramen brought their telephoto lenses to bear on some of the greatest medalists of the modern era, from Bob HAYES and Dawn FRASER to Abebe BIKILA and Joe FRAZIER. With its superb editing and sound recording, this documentary remains an unrivalled treat for both eye and ear.
市川崑（1915-2008），日本著名導演，與黑澤明、木下惠介、小林正樹並稱日本影壇四騎士。以推理小說家橫溝正史的《金田一耕助》系列為劇本拍成的電影以絢爛畫面、緊湊劇情大受歡迎。1964 年市川崑為東京奧委會，拍攝官方紀錄片，於1965 年推出，不落俗套的手法不僅讓他揚名世界，也為他贏得坎城影展國際影評人協會獎。其作品大部分來自日本文學作品改編，如《炎上》、《鍵》、《我是貓》、《細雪》等。
