Description
A film calendar listing synopses and photos of films shown from March to April 1998 at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. The synopses of these films explore the struggles faced by the Asian American community, including issues of identity, the generation gap between Asian American parents and children, and the impact of the Japanese American internment on different generations. The film "My America (... or Honk if you love Buddha)," featured in the calendar, includes an interview with activist Yuri Kochiyama. She exposed the mistreatment of Japanese Americans at internment camps, where authorities refused to provide medical treatment to her father, who was recovering from ulcer surgery. This ultimately led to her father's demise.
