Meeting Linda Hoaglund, Director of a VIFF Film "ANPO" VIFF参加「映画 安保」監督 リンダ・ホ―グランドさんを囲む会

Are you ready for VIFF (Vancouver International Film Festival)?

Film ANPO - by director Linda Hoaglund, producer of highly acclaimed film "Tokko-Wings of Defeat," will be shown in VIFF (6PM on Oct. 3, and 1:15 PM on Oct.4).
*Thanks to ANPO, the "American-Japanese Joint Security Pact", there are still 90 American military bases on Japanese soil, 30 of them in Okinawa. The "Pact" dates from the post-war years when Japan was governed by General MacArthur, and its periodic renewals attracted mass protests - sometimes violent - in the 1950s and 1960s, as seen in films by Oshima and others. Protests against the US Army presence on Japanese soil also surfaced in Japanese painting and sculpture, as shown in Linda Hoaglund's eye-opening documentary essay, which offers some broad historical perspectives on the struggles but centres on the responses of engaged artists. Hoaglund's own perspective (she is an American who was born and raised in Japan, well-known as the subtitler of many Japanese movies) gives the film real heft: she coaxes forthright statements from usually-reticent interviewees as well as getting up close to the political stances embedded in a wide range of paintings....
