Presented by Visual Communications, the nation’s premier Asian Pacific American media arts center. In this installment of “Border Crossings,” an ongoing exploration of community and society through cinema and media arts, we are pleased to present the World Premiere of A Flicker in Eternity, by Ann Kaneko and Sharon Yamato.

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 film 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. 

Special guests to be announced.

*Free with paid Museum admission; Free to JANM and Visual Communications members with valid I.D. Reservations recommended to rsvp@janm.org or 213.625.0414 at least 48 hours prior.
