Emmy-nominated Sacramento State
filmmaker presents documentary

Sacramento State emeritus professor and filmmaker Satsuki Ina will personally present a free screening of her film, From a Silk Cocoon, at 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 28 in the University Union Ballroom. The film is a documentary on Japanese internment camps in the western U.S. during World War II and traces how discrimination and the humiliation of being imprisoned left her parents torn between two countries, and led them to denounce their U.S. citizenship .

Following the screening, Ina will lead what promises to be a lively dialogue with the audience, discussing her experiences as an "accidental filmmaker" and the story's relevance to racism, civil liberties and today's war on terrorism.

Joining Ina will be several people involved in the production of the film, including the film's co-director and editor, Sacramento State graduate Stephen Holsapple, and current students Christopher Sato-Wong, who portrays Itaru Ina, and Sumitaka Saito, who portrays the voice of family friend and savior Kenji Kimot.
