A Song Film by Kishi Bashi: Omoiyari
Omoiyari: A Song Film by Kishi Bashi
Not Rated, 93 min
Directed by Kishi Bashi and Justin Taylor Smith
Violinist and songwriter Kaoru Ishibashi travels on a musical journey to understand WWII era Japanese Incarceration, assimilation, and what it means to be a minority in America today.
When a media interview links the muslim ban and the immigration crisis at the USA-Mexico border with the incarceration of Japanese-Americans during WWII, Ishibashi goes on a journey to learn about this history and its relevance. Along the way, he improvises and writes music in an effort to better understand his own identity as a bi-cultural American. Using never before seen archival footage from the camps, mixed with breathtaking visual storytelling, Kaoru weaves a story using history, music and current events to create a portrait of America from the perspective of someone caught between two worlds.
Post-film discussion with director Justin Taylor Smith and producer JJ Gerber on Sunday, November 19th. Part of the Raising Voices Film Series supported with grant funding from Park City Chamber and Summit County RAP Tax.
