Saturday, June 8, 2013 | 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM   
Katy Geissert Civic Center Library Community Meeting Room - 3301 Torrance Blvd
THIS PROGRAM IS NOW FULL - A LIMITED NUMBER OF STANDBY SEATS MAY BE AVAILABLE. A Flicker in Eternity is a documentary that tells the true World War II story of Stanley Hayami, a talented young teenager caught between his dream of becoming an artist and his duty to his country. Based on Stanley's diary and letters archived at the Japanese American National Museum, this coming-of-age tale chronicles Stanley's life behind barbed wire and as a soldier who was part of the 442nd Regimental Combat Team. The firm captures this young man's humor and imagination through endearing cartoons and witty observations that provide a firsthand look at the indignity of incarceration and the tragedy of war. This 26-minute film, produced by Ann Kaneko and Sharon Yamato, received the Best Documentary Short at the Asians on Film Festival. The story was written by Joanne Oppenheim and Sharon Yamato, with voiceovers by actors Aaron Yoo (Stanley) and Amy Hill (older sister, Sach). Michi Nishiura Weglyn's landmark book, Years of Infamy: The Untold Story of America's Concentration Camps, jumstarted the redress and reparations movement for more than 120,000 people of Japanese descent, most of them American citizens, who had been removed from their homes and businesses during World War II to live in the barbed wire camps. The film gives an intimate look at the life of Michi Nishiura Weglyn. Reservations are required due to limited seating: please call (310) 618-5945. On the day of the program, reserved seats must be claimed by no later than 12:45 pm; otherwise, those seats will be given away to any stand-bys. DEADLINE to reserve seats is June 5, 2013
