Filmmakers in attendance.

We often don’t appreciate what we have until it’s GONE. This film looks at present day Little Tokyo and the changes taking place. The question: Will we stand by until Little Tokyo is GONE, or will we stand up and fight for the future of our community?

Digital Histories 2019: Ideas, Observations, and Inspirations

H.G. Wells said that “Human history, in essence, is the history of ideas.” Digital Histories brings the unique perspectives of our older adult filmmakers and allows them to share their personal, yet universal ideas through their art. Death, camaraderie, displacement, personal passions, belonging, and the appreciation of the little things are given light through imaginative, thoughtful, and sometimes experimental ruminations on life lived today. — Joel Quizon
