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.
The film won the grand prize at the San Remo Film Festival, and was voted the ninth best Japanese film of 1971 in the Kinema Junpo poll of film critics.
