Two friends, two films: NYC this Sat., 11-6

First up, my dear friend Chisa Hidaka's three-minute media meditation on improvisatory dancing with spinner dolphins in the Pacific, Together: Dancing with Spinner Dolphins, will be screened at noon on Saturday, November 6, as part of the Big Apple Film Festival @ Tribeca Cinemas.

Next, another dear friend, Linda Hoaglund, premieres her new documentary, ANPO: Art x War, a wrenching look at the 50 year-old US-Japan Mutual Security Treaty, consigning tens of thousands of US troops to Japan in perpetuity, as seen through the eyes of the Japanese artists, writers and musicians who fought and continue to resist its stranglehold on the archipelago. Linda will be on hand for the 2 p.m. screening this Saturday, November 6, at the Big Apple Film Festival @ Tribeca Cinemas.
