A fascinating and provocative documentary dealing with the development of post-World War II Japan from the perspective of visual artists, this film focuses on the 1960 controversy surrounding the renewal of the U.S.-Japan Treaty of Mutual Cooperation and Security — also known as ANPO — which allowed the United States to continue operating nearly 100 military bases across Japan.

Hoaglund examines the protests, illustrated with artwork, film clips and commentary by individuals who were either participants or used the events of five decades ago to shape their creative output and political philosophies.

The screening will be introduced by director Linda Hoagland.
