Furikake popcorn and green tea will be pro vided. Donations suggested.\n\n<strong><em>Old Man River.</em></strong> Cy nthia Gates Fujikawa. This unusual portrait of a daughter trying to know h er stoic father years after his death\, combines writer/performer Cynthia Gates Fujikawa's acclaimed\, multi-media\, one woman stage performansce\, with a stirring collage of moving and still images that mesh to reveal a k aleidoscopic portrait of hollywood charactor actor Jerry Fujikawa (Chinato wn\, M*A*S*H\, Taxi). Jerry's career playing every imaginable Asian stereo type seemed anything but glamorous and always predictable to his daughter. But when Ms. Fujikawa stumbles upon a mysterious secret her father would take to his grave\, she embarks upon a journey that brings her face to fac e with American racism\, specifically the internment of Japanese Ameircans during World War II\, and eventually leads her to a sister she never knew existed. <em>Old Man River</em> brings to life an astoundingly tragic and complex American family history\, while connecting this personal story to larger political and social issues (1998\, 73 minutes).\n\n SUMMARY:Wednesday Night at the Movies\; Old Man River URL:/en/events/2010/07/21/wednesday-night-at-the-movies-old-man-river/ END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
