Film Making, Art & Activism: A Conversation with Director Tadashi Nakamura

March 19, 12:30pm - 2:00pm
West Oʻahu Campus, D237

Film Screening and Q&A with Director Tadashi Nakamura

The Film Maker:
Nakamura, a Los Angeles-based filmmaker, was named one of CNN’s “Young People Who Rock” for being the youngest filmmaker at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival as well as one of the “30 Most Influential Asian Americans Under 30” by the popular website Angry Asian Man. Nakamura’s trilogy of documentary films on the Japanese American experience, Yellow Brotherhood (2003), Pilgrimage (2007) and A Song for Ourselves (2009) have garnered over 20 awards at film festivals around the world with Pilgrimage being one of 83 short films out of 7,500 submissions selected for the 2008 Sundance Film Festival.

The Film:
Jake Shimabukuro: Life on Four Strings, Nakamura’s first full-length documentary, is a compelling portrait of an inspiring and inventive musician whose virtuoso skills on the ukulele have transformed all previous notions of the instrument’s potential. On the road from Los Angeles to New York to Japan, the film captures the solitary life on tour: the exhilaration of performance, the wonder of newfound fame, the loneliness of separation from home and family.
