  • Kagami Wari—mochi-pounding dance/demonstration at noon

Be sure to catch the short film screening about Nikkei identity at the Lecture Hall at 2 p.m. See "Hideko" by "Caught In Between: What to Call Home in Times of War" Filmmaker Lina Hoshino: Hideko Hoshino has had many names. The story, narrated by the filmmaker, places Hideko's life and name changes in the context of tumultuous Taiwanese history before and after World War II.

In addition, watch the Nisei Farmer which is filmmaker Dean Yamada's new DVD release. It pays tribute to his father and the reconciliation of his past. Both reveal what has been lost and what has survived. A Q&A discussion will follow.
