Linda C. Ehrlich—essayist, poet, teacher—offers a new window onto world cinema and dance through her varied writings. Trained at the University of Hawaii/East-West Center, she has lived extensively in Japan, and has also enjoyed extended sojourns in Spain, Italy, India, and Israel. Her commentary appears on the Criterion DVD of the Spanish film Spirit of the Beehive. She has taught on the Semester-at-Sea program and at several universities and colleges.
She has received grants from the Japan Foundation, the Spanish Ministry of Culture, the Bogliasco Foundation, the Asian Cultural Council, and the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities, among others.
In her writings, a lyrical approach, grounded in scholarship, offers unexpected interpretations and connections.
