UCSC Night at the Museum – Resettlement: Chicago Story
What is it like to be forced to leave your home, deny your heritage, and start over? Join us for the California premiere of Resettlement: Chicago Story, a new short fictional film and educational website, which explores how people of Japanese ancestry remade their lives in the Midwest after their wrongful incarceration during World War II.
The event is part of the annual Night at the Museum hosted by the Humanities Institute and the Humanities Division at UC Santa Cruz. It is also co-sponsored by the Watsonville-Santa Cruz Japanese American Citizens League and will serve as this year’s Day of Remembrance. The evening will commence with a special performance by the Watsonville Taiko Group, followed by a screening of the film, a preview of the larger web experience, and a Q&A discussion with some of the project’s core creators. Marcia Hashimoto will attend and speak to the enduring legacy of her late and much beloved husband Mas Hashimoto. The event’s panel will feature key members of the project, including the film’s director and executive producer, website creators, and UC Santa Cruz’s Dean of Humanities, Jasmine Alinder, who led the research team.
