Please join CAAMFest as we honor and celebrate the life of San Francisco Public Defender Jeff Adachi, with a tribute to his work as a filmmaker, community activist, and advocate for social justice through
his films. The program will include clips from his films (THE SLANTED SCREEN, YOU DON’T KNOW JACK SOO, THE RIDE, DEFENDER), and a preview of a film Jeff was working on at the time of his tragic death. The program will also include appreciations by CAAM, friends and former colleagues, and members from the Asian American and independent film communities.
