Film Screening: Hidden Legacy: Japanese Traditional Performing Arts in the World War II Internment Camps
September 24, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
The Carolina Asia Center presents the regional premiere of HIDDEN LEGACY: Japanese Traditional Performing Arts in the World War II Internment Camps, directed by Shirley Kazuyo Muramoto-Wong.
“Hidden Legacy fills an enormous vacuum in our understanding of cultural practices among Japanese American “internees” during World War II. Prior to the release of the film, virtually nothing written or recorded had examined and chronicled the ways that the traditional Japanese performing arts were maintained — and indeed thrived — in the midst of incarceration. […] Recreation is indeed political. Drawing upon the voices of performing artists, Hidden Legacy underscores the resilience, creativity, and passion of an incarcerated people.” -Michael Omi, American Sociologist and Ethnic Studies Professor at UC Berkeley
