JAPANESE INTERNMENT DOCUMENTARY

The University of Illinois Springfield will host two screenings of the “Hidden Histories” film series, including the short film A Song for Manzanar, produced and directed by Springfield native Kazuko Golden and based on a story of the family of her mother, Springfield resident Yosh Golden, who was born in the Manzanar concentration camp in California during WWII. Both screenings are free and open to the public. UIS associate professor of political science Richard Gilman-Opalsky will moderate a panel discussion following the 4 p.m. showing, featuring Kazuko and Yosh Golden.  The screenings will be held on Friday, Oct. 6, at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. at UIS Brookens Auditorium, located on the lower level of Brookens Library. For more information about the screenings, contact Richard Gilman-Opalsky at 206-8328 or rgilm3@uis.edu.
