Happy Hour: “A Song for Ourselves” a Film on Chris Iijima

Nakamura Sundance Interview on CNN TRT: 9 min. from Tadashi Nakamura on Vimeo.

Dale Minami, Yuri Kochiyama, Audee Kochiyama Holman, Marjorie Fujiki, Diane Matsuda, Eddie Wong and Keith Kamisugi invite you to join us for a special happy hour on Saturday, March 14, from 6:30 p.m. at the new A5 Steak Lounge, 244 Jackson St., San Francisco, to celebrate Tad Nakamura’s, A SONG FOR OURSELVES, a moving tribute to pioneering singer and activist Chris Iijima. RSVP on Facebook or evite.com.

In the film, colleagues, friends and family reminisce about his life and commitment to peace and justice, from his early days in New York to his final years in Hawai’i.

Director Tad Nakamura will join us that evening. His previous film, YELLOW BROTHERHOOD, was awarded Best Documentary Short at the San Diego Asian Film Festival and has also been screened in numerous film festivals around the country.

The event takes place at the new A5 STEAK LOUNGE, a sleeker, more modern version of a steakhouse, blending the vibe of a cocktail lounge with an old-school steak palace. Special thanks to Steve Chen for having us that night.

The event is free with no-host bar. Food will be available for order in the lounge.

The film is showing during the 27th Annual San Francisco Asian American Film Festival in mid-March.
