CATS will screen a number of films at the Japanese American Museum of San Jose in support of the Day of Remembrance events held by the Nihonmachi Outreach Committee. The first film will be the South Bay premiere of “The Virtues of Corned Beef Hash,” starring Hiroshi Kashiwagi and Tim Yamamura and written and directed by Kerwin Berk. The film is a character study of a soldier who was a member of the famed 442nd RCT. Kashiwagi, Yamamura and Berk will participate in a panel following the screening. The second feature will be “Camp Amache: An American Tragedy” — a moving account of one of the incarceration camps that includes present day restoration projects.
Admission to the screening will be free with donations accepted. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Nichi Bei Weekly, a supporter of Berk’s film.
