Emperor Tomato Ketchup (トマトケチャップ皇帝 Tomato Kechappu Kōtei) is a Japanese short experimental film made by Shūji Terayama. A 27 minute cut was released in 1971. A "director's cut" of sorts, attempting to recreate the film as originally made in 1970, was released as a 75-minute feature in 1996, 13 years after Terayama's death.
A young boy is the emperor of a country in which children have overthrown the adults.
