講演要旨 :

Ms. Linda Ohama is an award-winning Japanese Canadian filmmaker who has produced and directed many films, including Obaachan’s 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.

Ms. Ohama will discuss Watari Dori (“A Bird of Passage,” 2001), and depending on time also show scenes of this and other films which depict the experience of Japanese Canadians in internment camps. After she toured comparable internment camps in the United States, she came to reflect on the similarities and differences between the Japanese Canadian and Japanese American experiences during this deeply troubled time in history. Those reflections will also be featured in Ms. Ohama’s lecture and film screening.
