In honor of AAPI Heritage Month, join us on Sunday, May 28 for the world premiere screening of The Oath of the Sword (1914)—recently discovered at the George Eastman Museum by scholar Denise Khor—considered to be the earliest known Asian American film production.
Presented by the Japanese American National Museum (JANM), the screening will be shown with live musical accompaniment by pianist, improviser, and composer Naomi Nakanishi and will be followed by a panel discussion with Stephen Gong, Executive Director of the Center for Asian American Media (CAAM); Karen L. Ishizuka, Chief Curator at JANM; and Denise Khor, Associate Professor of Asian American Studies and Visual Studies at Northeastern University. The panel will be moderated by Renee Tajima-Peña, Professor of Asian American Studies at UCLA.
