ANPO:
Art X War


Directed by Linda Hoaglund, Appearing in Person


In 1951, Japan signed the US-Japan Mutual Security treaty (ANPO in Japanese), giving the US the right to maintain armed forces on their soil. A growing resistance to the U.S. military presence culminated in the protests of 1960 – in which millions of citizens took to the streets. ANPO: Art X War allows the art of Japanese artists to guide viewers through the opposition to the effects of the government response and the onerous U.S. military presence that has disrupted Japanese life for decades.
USA/Japan 2010, digital video, color, 89 min. Japanese and English with English subtitles.
