ATOMIC CAFE: The Noisiest Corner in J-Town.
Watch “ATOMIC CAFE:
The Noisiest Corner in J-Town.” A project of LTSC, this documentary explores how a family-owned restaurant in Little Tokyo became one of the most popular hang-outs for L.A.’s exploding punk rock scene of the late 1970s.
As part of LTSC’s creative placekeeping work, this film partners artists and community members to demonstrate the power of owning and telling their own stories — especially when physical spaces connected to those stories are being destroyed.
Now available to view at a pay-what-you-wish rate until September 30, 2020.
After you’ve watched the movie, join Atomic Nancy, her daughter Zen, and filmmakers Tad Nakamura and Akira Boch for a live Q&A panel discussion hosted by the Japanese American National Museum on Sunday, 9/27/20 at 2 p.m. They’ll discuss the film, themes of gentrification, community empowerment and more!
