Producer/Director Linda Hoaglund was born and raised in Japan. Her previous film, WINGS OF DEFEAT, told the story of Kamikaze pilots who survived WWII. She directed and produced ANPO, a film about Japanese resistance to U.S. bases seen through the eyes and works of celebrated Japanese artists. She worked as a bilingual news producer for Japanese TV. She has subtitled Japanese films, represents Japanese directors and artists, and serves as an international liaison for film producers.
ANPO: Art X War is a film depicting decades of resistance to U.S. military bases in Japan, through a treasure trove of oil paintings, photographs, contemporary art and film clips that were discovered, mostly languishing in museum storage and private collections in Japan. Hoaglund's film, ANPO: ART X WAR will be screened at 7pm in the Natural Sciences Auditorium on Thursday, March 22nd. The screening is free and open to the public.
