Big Read Film Screening: Rabbit in the Moon

Saturday, February 20, 2021

Join us at 6:00 PM for the film and post-film discussion with Director Emiko Omori, writer and activist Chizu Omori and JACL Director David Inoue. Description: Rabbit in the Moon uncovers a buried history of political tensions, social and generational divisions, and resistance and collaboration in the Japanese American Internment camps. With fascinating archival and recently recovered home movies, Filmmaker Emiko Omori and her older sister, who were children when they went to the camps, also confront their own family secrets. Panel discussion following the film is moderated by national JACL director David Inoue.
