Documentary filmmaker Greg Chaney has been invited to screen his film The Empty Chair at the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles, CA, on April 2, 2016. The showing will take place in the Tateuchi Democracy Forum at 2:00 p.m. A question and answer period with Chaney will follow the screening.
Some of the people featured in the film will be attending along with members of the Empty Chair Committee. Our hope is that others will make a commitment to be there also. Let it be you! If you want to attend, please contact us so that Greg can provide your name to the attendance list.
In addition, while at the DisOrient Asian American Film Festival, Greg was invited to show his film to students at Roosevelt Middle School in Eugene, Oregon.
We are delighted that students are viewing the film so they can appreciate all the nuances of Juneau’s Empty Chair story and begin to think about the ramifications of denying American citizens due process under the law.
Thanks Greg for passing on the messages of the Empty Chair to our youth.
