Kaneto Shindo Biography

  • Profession: Screenwriter, Director
  • Born: Apr 28, 1912
  • Died: May 29, 2012

Japanese filmmaker/scriptwriter Kaneto Shindo's most famous directorial efforts include The Island (1960), a nearly silent, but powerful glimpse at a lonely farmer's daily toil, and [[Feature~V87172~Children of Hiroshima~childrenofhiroshima]] (1952), a wrenching and sentimental account of the city's post-bomb aftermath. Shindo was born in Hiroshima and got his start in films as an art director during the late '30s. Less than a decade later, he wrote his first screenplays and went on to work with a number of Japanese directors, including [[Performer~P103129~Kenji Mizoguchi~kenjimizoguchi]] and [[Performer~P95358~Kon Ichikawa~konichikawa]]. In 1950, Shindo was a co-founder of a production company. He made his directorial debut in 1951 with The Story of a Beloved Wife. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
