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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
