The Ito Sisters Reveals a Little-Known Chapter of the Early Japanese American Experience

The Osher Marin JCC is excited to host a special screening of the documentary film The Ito Sisters. Directed and produced by Antonia Grace Glenn, the documentary captures the rarely told stories of the earliest Japanese immigrants to the United States and their American-born children. In particular, the film focuses on the experiences of Issei (or immigrant) and Nisei (or first generation born in the US) women, whose voices have largely been excluded from American history.

Following the film, please join us for a panel discussion, moderated by the filmmaker, in which we will draw historical parallels between the Japanese American incarceration camps, and the camps set up near our borders today. Of particular focus will be how wartime incarceration disproportionately affects women and children, leading to trauma that can take generations to address and begin to heal. The film and panel discussion are appropriate for middle school-aged children and up. Concessions available for purchase.

Panelists include:
* Lucia Martel Dow, Director of Immigration & Social Services, Canal Alliance
* Dr. Evelyn Nakano Glenn, Lead Scholar, The Ito Sisters and Professor of the Graduate School, UC Berkeley
* Dr. Peg Sandel, Head of School, Brandeis Marin
