Bay Area Premiere of NOBUKO MIYAMOTO: A SONG IN MOVEMENT at CAAMFest

Saturday, May 11th, 2024 – 5:00pm
SFMOMA
– 151 3rd St., San Francisco

NOBUKO MIYAMOTO: A SONG IN MOVEMENT

A Film by Tadashi Nakamura & Quyên Nguyen-Le
A Co-production of Watase Media Arts Center at JANM and PBS SoCal

A post-screening Q&A and special performance by Nobuko Miyamoto will follow the 60-minute. screening.

A two-year-old in internment camp grows up to find her light on stage, in song, in 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.

Purchase Tickets: through CAAMFest website

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