This week’s Virtual Moving History is a partial reprisal of the November 2018 archival screening Sticky Shed Syndrome. The introduction features an educational video about sticky shed, one of the contamination affiliations that can commonly befall magnetic media video and audio tapes. Inspired by the NWFF’s current streaming series with Sentient.Art.Film, My Sight is Lined with Visions: 1990s Asian American Film & Video (May 29 – Jun. 7), the video from local archives featured in this screening will focus on content created by and about Asian Americans in the Pacific Northwest.
Material will include:
- Stand-up comedy, dance and theatrical performances by the Northwest Asian American Theatre group from the early 1990s (Wing Luke Museum)
- Oral history interviews with residents of Bainbridge Island who were forcibly interned during World War II (Bainbridge Island Historical Museum)
- Silent footage from Asian American home movie collections (Elmer Ogawa, Iwao Matsushita, Kushi, Otsuka) held by the University of Washington Libraries, Special Collections
- A profile of Seattle artist George Tsutakawa and how the Pacific Northwest has inspired their work, interviewed by Jean Walkinshaw
