Saturday continues exploring these themes through three shorts programs showcasing various perspectives on identity, and a feature documentary about the Japanese American incarceration during WWII. Sunday’s program concludes with a day-long focus on the Chinese Exclusion Act and screening of Chinese American home movies set to live narration and musical accompaniment.
