The 2017 Berkeley Film Festival award-winning documentary, The Ito Sisters: An American Story, continues its tour heading to Walnut Grove, California, near to where the three Ito sisters were born.
The FREE screening explores the raw experiences of Issei (or Japanese immigrant) and Nisei (or first generation born in the US) narratives following the three Nisei sisters, Natsuye (Nancy), Haruye (Lillian) and Hideko (Hedy), during 20th century America, from the San Francisco Earthquake of 1906 to the Great Depression to World War II.
The director and producer, Antonia Grace Glenn believes the film’s themes of immigration, citizenship and American identity are parallel to the current political climate. Viewers are invited to stay for a question and answer forum taking place after the film.
