Omoiyari: A Song Film By Kishi Bashi
Past Event

“Omoiyari” a Japanese word that means to have sympathy and compassion towards another person. Join us in the BIMA Auditorium to take a moment and commemorate the anniversary of the Executive Order 9066.

A universal concept in human interaction that is required for a sustainable society. In Omoiyari: A Song Film By Kishi Bashi, internationally acclaimed composer and songwriter Kaoru Ishibashi (professionally know as “Kishi Bashi”) embarks on a personal quest by creating his music in locations relevant to the Japanese American Incarceration during WWII. It is on this journey in which Kishi Bashi comes to terms with his own identity, and uncovers a myriad of social issues that have gripping modern relevance. ‘Omoiyari’ is a genre breaking, artistic exploration that fuses history, music, and the complexities of the human condition.
