Mile High JACL Film Screening

  • History Colorado Center 200 North Broadway Denver, CO, 80203 United States (map)

As part of the Mile High Japanese American Citizens League's Day of Remembrance weekend, Mile High JACL and History Colorado Center will host a special film screening and talkback the evening of Saturday, 2/16 from 7 pm to 9 pm at History Colorado Center, prior to our daytime DOR program on Sunday (2/17)

This film screening will include DOR keynote speaker Satsuki Ina’s first documentary Children of the Camps and a short feature, Seppuku, by LA-based Japanese American filmmaker, Daryn Wakasa. Both films focus on the intergenerational transmission of trauma caused by wartime incarceration. There will be a discussion and Q&A facilitated with both filmmakers following the screening. 

Admission for this film screening is free, however space in this venue is limited to 100 people.

Please RSVP by emailing info@milehighjacl.org.

Note: Children of the Camps is a documentary involving a series of conversations, and is suitable for most audiences. Seppuku, which will be shown first and has a run time of 25 minutes, is a thriller and has some intense moments, so discretion for younger viewers is advised.
