Special Program

Join us at 6PM in Jacobs Hall for a film screening in collaboration with Pacific Arts Movement and the San Diego Asian Film Festival:

History and Memory: For Akiko and Takashige (1991) by Rea Tajiri

Filmmaker Rea Tajiri’s family was among the 120,000 Japanese and Japanese Americans who were imprisoned in internment camps after the attack on Pearl Harbor. Drawing from a variety of sources—Hollywood spectacle, government propaganda, newsreels, memories of the living, and spirits of the dead—History and Memory offers a poetic exploration of recorded history and unrecorded memory. Click here to join.

Following the screening is a Q&A with Tajiri and UCSD Associate Professor and visual artist, Nguyen Tan Hoang.
