Throw Away Your Books, Rally in the Streets (書を捨てよ町へ出よう Sho o Suteyo Machi e Deyō) is a 1971 Japanese feature-length experimental drama film directed by Shūji Terayama. A metaphor for Japan's descent into materialism, it follows a young man's disillusionment with the world around him and his determination to achieve something in life while his family members are content with their poor social and economic standing. It was Terayama's first feature-length film.
