Projecting Connections:Within These Walls

Directed by Tatsu Aoki and Produced by Lenora Lee

Recipient of two Isadora Duncan Dance Awards: Special Achievement for Outstanding Performance

Inspired by experiences of those detained, interrogated and processed at the U.S. Immigration Station, Angel Island State Park in San Francisco Bay, Within These Walls is a film in which dance, memory, music, and poetry serve as a meditation on healing, resilience, and compassion. This U.S. Immigration Station is an International Site of Conscience, site of remembrance transformed and animated as part of a community-wide commemoration of the 1882 Chinese Exclusion Act, speaking to the power of individuals and communities to transcend.
