1,600 viewers join preview of "Ushiku"

It was humbling to have 1,600 viewers join us online for the preview screening of "Ushiku" last evening. And I continue to be in awe of the courageousness of the participants who choose to speak out about their treatment inside of immigration detention at great risk. Two of the participants joined us for the screening last evening, and I look forward to more screenings where audiences can hear directly from more of the film's participants. 

The World Premier of "Ushiku" will take place from June 1-6 in the Nippon Connection - Japanese Film Festival which will be held online due to the pandemic.
