ANPO: Art X War is a feature-length documentary film that reveals the untold story of resistance to U.S. military bases in Japan, told through a treasure trove of paintings, photographs and films by Japan’s foremost artists. Their art and their stories depict the struggle against the U.S. military presence which provoked a national uprising in 1960 and still festers today.
