I was extremely honored to begin my week of screenings and lectures on Monday (April 22) at Stanford University Medical School’s Li Ka Shing Learning and Knowledge Center for a group of medical students. The first public screening was of the rough cut of my new documentary "Sending Off" the following day (April 23) INFO.
The event was sponsored by Stanford University's Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures (EALC), the Center for East Asian Studies (CEAS), Medicine and the Muse, and Camera as Witness. Pictured below with Dr. Audrey Shafer (professor, medical doctor and director of Medicine and Muse), Dr. Matsumoto Yoshiko (professor of East Asian Languages, Cultures and Linguistics) and Jasmina Bojic (director of Camera as Witness and the United Nations Association Film Festival.
I was extremely honoured to be invited to lecture at classes on Wednesday and Thursday including “Japanese Through Film” with Professor Matsumoto Yasuko, “Growing Up and Older in Japan” with Professor Matsumoto Yoshiko, and “Medical Humanities and the Arts” with Dr. Audrey Shafer. On Thursday evening, the East Asian Studies Workshop held a screening of my film “A2-B-C” (2013).
A wonderful close to the week at Stanford, was a screening on Friday of my 2014 documentary “-1287” INFO.
I am so grateful for the opportunity to have presented so many screenings and guest lectures this week and for the support of Stanford University‘s Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures (EALC), the Center for East Asian Studies (CEAS), Medicine and the Muse, and Camera as Witness.
