Join us Friday December 2nd for the Chicago premiere of The Orange Story at the Chicago Cultural Center! This FREE event will include a screening of The Orange Story along with other short films, and a post-screening discussion panel with the filmmakers and other special guests. This event is generously co-presented by the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events.
The troubling story of Japanese American incarceration during WWII is an important but often glossed-over part of American history. Hidden Histories and the Power of Narrative Film commemorates and explores this complicated history through four short films, coupled with a post-screening discussion. These films are unique in their creative use of narrative techniques to bring audiences into the emotional core of powerful first-person stories. The screening will be followed by a discussion about Japanese American incarceration and how this history is still relevant today.
We are incredibly excited to share this story with the Chicago community. Admission is free with RSVP. More information available at https://www.cityofchicago.org/city/en/depts/dca/supp_info/orange_story.html
