New Meetup: Movie: Anpo

From: Tatsuya

Announcing a new Meetup for Tokyo Museum Meetup Group!

What: Movie: Anpo

When: Sunday, October 31,[masked]:15 PM

2F, 37-18 Udagawa-cho, Shibuya-ku

Movie: Anpo

Anpo is the abbreviation for Nichibei Anzen Hoshou Jyouyaku, which is the Japanese word for the Japan-US Security Treaty, and the focus of this documentary is Anpo-Tousou, the campaign against the treaty. Anpo-Tousou was the largest anti-war/peace campaigns in Japanese history, which took place twice, around 1960 and 1970, and was carried out by workers, students and other citizens often with violent means. Riots and student upheavals were intertwined with Anpo-Tousou, and the campaign swept over this country.

The documentary was created by Japanese-born American, Linda Hoaglund. In this work, the director depicts Anpo-Tousou through testimonies and works by artists who went through the turmoil period in modern Japanese history and confronts us with the ideas which make us contemplate on the relation between Japan and the US. Hope some of you are interested in learning about modern Japanese culture and society through this movie.
