On Monday, Oct. 3, at 6:30 p.m. in Knights Hall, the Pace Academy Arts Alliance and the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion will host a moderated conversation with filmmaker, multi-instrumentalist, singer and composer Kishi Bashi.
Kishi Bashi will discuss his journey as an Asian-American artist in the entertainment industry and his experiences as an internationally touring violinist and composer. His award-winning movie, Omoiyari: A songfilm by Kishi Bashi, premiered at the SXSW Film Festival in March and explores minority identity and the incarceration of Japanese-Americans in and after World War II.
The free event will feature clips from the film, music, a short presentation and a Q&A. The evening is open to all members of the Pace community and is part of Kishi Bashi’s two-day visit to Pace, which also includes programming for students in each division.
Knights Hall is located on the fifth floor of the Garcia Family Middle School. Learn more and order merchandise at www.kishibashi.com.
