CAAM: Memories to Light

Memories to Light is a project by the Center for Asian American Media (CAAM) to collect and digitize home movies and to share them - and the stories they tell - to a broad public.

Through Memories to Light: Asian American Home Movies, the power of collective memory and media will bring to life the experiences of Asian American communities from across the country and spanning six decades (1920s through the 1980s) of the 20th Century.

CAAM hopes that this truly unique arts experience will collectively and aesthetically construct shared social, cultural, and political representations of Asian America directly from the community itself.

At the heart of this project is how collective memory can be amassed and sustained through interactive participation.

Memories to Light: Asian American Home Movies demonstrates the importance of collective storytelling and will provide a greater understanding of the Asian American experience.
