This engaging 2017 documentary from director Antonia Grace Glenn focuses on the experiences of Issei and Nisei women whose voices have largely been excluded from American history. At the heart of the film are three Nisei sisters: Natsuye (Nancy), Haruye (Lillian), and Hideko (Hedy), who were born on a farm in the Sacramento River Delta and whose lives were directly impacted by significant historical events such as the San Francisco Earthquake of 1906, the Great Depression, and World War II.

Their narratives are set against the backdrop of the anti-Japanese movement in California, which culminated in the forced evacuation and incarceration of more than 120,000 Japanese Americans from the West Coast. Interviewed in their 80s and 90s, the three sisters are colorful and memorable characters, recalling stories of humor, hardship, and heartbreak.

The screening will be followed by a discussion between the filmmaker and Evelyn Nakano Glenn, Professor of the Graduate School at the University of California, Berkeley, and Michael Omi, Associate Professor of Asian American and Asian Diaspora Studies at the University of California, Berkeley.

Included with museum admission. RSVPs are recommended.
