Date of Birth: Feb 14, 1916
Biography: Kobayashi began a career in film in 1941 by entering Shochiku Studios as an apprentice director, but his career was almost immediately interrupted when he was drafted into the army and sent to Manchuria--ending up as a POW during the Sino-Japanese war. His most famous film, the epic "The Human Condition", set in a Manchurian forced labour camp, was partly based on his experience. Kobayashi regarded himself as a pacifist. His way of resisting was to refuse promotion to a rank higher than private.
