“A Flicker in Eternity" Film Screening and Discussion with Lane Hirabayashi 
January 11, 2014 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Location Asia Society Texas Center, 1370 Southmore Blvd., Houston, TX 77004
“A Flicker in Eternity” is the coming-of-age tale of Stanley Hayami, a talented young teenager caught between his dream of becoming a writer/artist and his duty to his country. Based on Hayami’s own, this documentary is the firsthand account of a 15-year-old thrust into the turmoil of World War II and is a poignant reminder of the indignity of incarceration and the tragedy of war. Through Stanley’s endearing cartoons and witty observations, this film chronicles his life behind barbed wire and as a soldier in the 442nd Regimental Combat Team. It is based on his diary and letters, which are archived at the Japanese American National Museum, and Joanne Oppenheim’s annotations from Stanley Hayami, Nisei Son. Lane Ryo Hirabayashi is a full professor in the Department of Asian American Studies at UCLA, where he is also the inaugural "George & Sakaye Aratani Chair in Japanese American Incarceration, Redress, and Community.”  Hirabayashi teaches courses on the Japanese American experience, Asian American history through the medium of documentaries, and contemporary issues in the Asian American community, among other classes and seminars. This event is presented in conjunction with “American Heroes: Japanese American World War II Nisei Soldiers and The Congressional Gold Medal” on view through Sunday, Jan. 26, 2014, at Holocaust Museum Houston. The National Veterans Network has partnered with the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service, the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, and the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Program to share this extraordinary story during an exclusive seven-city tour, ending at Holocaust Museum Houston. Tickets are $5 for members and $10 for nonmembers. To RSVP, please visit http://asiasociety.org/texas or call 713-496-9901.
