After a wildly successful screening on November 5, The Ito Sisters will air once again at the East Bay Media Center in Berkeley on December 3. The film captures the rarely told stories of the earliest Japanese immigrants to the United States and their American-born children.
At the center of the film are three Nisei sisters: Natsuye (Nancy), Haruye (Lillian) and Hideko (Hedy), who were born on a farm in the Sacramento River Delta and whose lives were directly impacted by some of the most significant events of 20th-century America, from the San Francisco Earthquake of 1906 to the Great Depression to World War II.
Featuring interviews with the three sisters, conducted in their 80s and 90s, the film is also brought to life through family and archival photographs and documents, commentary and analysis from renowned scholars, and artistic illustrations.
