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 Children of Hiroshima (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 Kenji Mizoguchi and Kon Ichikawa. 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.
