Nobuko Miyamoto: A Song In Movement

Directed by Quyen Nguyen-Le, Tadashi Nakamura

A post-screening Q&A and special performance by Nobuko Miyamoto will follow the screening.

A two year old in internment camp grows up to find her light on stage, in song, on film, and in the movement with other Asian American civil rights activists. Nobuko Miyamoto’s artist-self blossomed in a time where immigrants and working class people were in search of belonging in a changing America. But just like sakura trees, her artistry from that point will endlessly bloom. Through her ceaseless labor in the arts, she not only defines her craft as a community practice but continues to find joy and purpose in all of it, and for this Nobuko Miyamoto is raised up and revered among generations of immigrants, their children, activists and artists alike.

Expected Guests in Attendance: Co-Director Quyên Nguyen-Le, Co-Director/Producer Tadashi Nakamura, Subject Nobuko Miyamoto, and Composer Derek Nakamoto
