From a Silk Cocoon film screening
November 5, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
FREE Screening: From a Silk Cocoon
Sunday November 5th at 3 PM at Unitarian Universalist Church of Berkeley
The Social Justice Council of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Berkeley invites you to join them for a free screening of From a Silk Cocoon, followed by Q&A with filmmaker Satsuki Ina, immigration lawyer Laura Craig, and Zahra Billoo, Executive Director of the Council of American-Islamic Relations.
The film tells the story of Ina’s parents, a Japanese American couple who struggled being incarcerated in Tule Lake internment camp, a maximum security facility which housed those deemed “disloyal” during WW II, and the consequences of resistance. Their story connects US history of the past to US history of the present, DACA youth and the undocumented, and into the future with the possibility of a Muslim registry.
Filmmaker Satsuki Ina is a psychotherapist, working with community trauma patients.
She serves the Japanese American community who were born in camps, and currently
travels to Texas to work with Latinas and their children held in private prisons from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras.
Doors open at 2:30 PM
