Yuka Hoshino (WSC, '92), President of Gaga Communications

We were very excited to see that Yuka Hoshino has been appointed president of Gaga Communications, a distributor of foreign films in Japan. Yuka is the first female president of the company and is the only woman topping any midsized-to-large Japanese distributor.

Gaga's lineup for this year and next includes "Che Part 1," which has so far pulled in $9 million; "Burn After Reading"; "Streetfighter: The Legend of Chun-Li"; "Final Destination IV"; "Oceans"; "My Sister's Keeper"; and local thriller "MW," based on a classic comic by Osamu Tezuka. In other words, the usual Gaga mix of indie and mainstream product.
