CHANGING SEASON: ON THE MASUMOTO FAMILY FARM
Roxie Theatre Sat, Feb 20, 2016 2:15 PM

Changing Season chronicles a transitional year-in-the-life of famed farmer, slow food advocate, and sansei, David “Mas” Masumoto, and his compelling relationship with daughter Nikiko, who returns to the family farm with the intention of stepping into her father’s work boots. Mas’ hopes and hesitations for the future are shored up with his daughter’s return, even as the family navigates other struggles. The film is interspliced with moments of Nikiko’s razor sharp meditations on her family’s internment during WWII and her role as a queer, progressive farmer in the Central Valley. -Chris Metzler

Plays with:  TOUCHING THE UNTOUCHABLE, Chihiro Wimbush and Meena Srinivasan, 8 min.
