Flyer for "The Making of Paper City" directed by Adrian Francis, March 2 5:30-6:30PM HSSB 4080

Please join us on Wednesday, March 2, 5:30 – 6:30 PM as we welcome Dr. David Fedman (UC Irvine) to discuss his new documentary, Paper City.  The documentary will make its US premiere at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival on March 3 and March 6. The documentary examines the history and memory of the Tokyo fire bombings. For those who don’t know Dr. Fedman’s work, he is the co-director of the Japan Air Raids project and one of the most prominent public historians, in the US and Japan, of the Tokyo fire bombings. He is also the author of the recent, and wonderful, monograph, Seeds of Control: Japan’s Empire of Forestry in Colonial Korea (University of Washington, 2020).

We will meet in person at UC Santa Barbara on March 2, 5:30 – 6:30pm, in HSSB 4080. Please RSVP to Professor Sabine Frühstück directly at fruhstuck@eastasian.ucsb.edu.
