“Carved in Silence” Film Night

Tuesday, May 15th


Cowell Conference Room
(In the walkway area, directly across from the Cowell office)

“Carved in Silence” is a film by Felicia Lowe that explains the dramatic story of Angel Island, also known as the “Ellis Island of the West.” After the Chinese Exclusion Act (1882), potential immigrants were detained in an “Immigration Station” on this small island and vigorously interrogated for up to three years. Some detainees brushed or carved their feelings in poetry onto the wooden walls of the detention center. The film features interviews with detainees and scenes recreated in the actual barracks.

Guest speakers and discussion leaders include Nancy Kim (AA/PIRC Director) and Yiman Wang (UCSC Professor in Film & Digital Media).

Limited seating: only 40 spots available.

Snacks and drinks will be available.
