講演者: Linda Ohama 氏

Ms. Linda Ohama is an award-winning Japanese Canadian filmmaker who produced and directed the film Obachan’s Garden (http://culturevulture.net:/film/obachans-garden/) and the documentary film “Tohoku no Shingetsu”(“New Moon Over Tohoku”), which concerns the experiences of people in Tohoku who were affected by the earthquake/tsunami/nuclear disaster of March 11, 2011 and its aftermath.

The speaker will talk about her recently performed play “From the Inland Sea,” and students will be asked to perform scenes from it that they practiced in class. She will put the play—which involved experiences of her Japanese Canadian grandfather during WWII—into context by giving some background history of the internment of North Americans of Japanese descent during the war.
