Join us for a provocative series of Monday sessions with filmmakers and artists as we gather to discuss what drives these individuals, something about their backgrounds and what has gotten them to their current place. We will review clips and memories with them as Walt Louie — veteran director/editor/educator — provokes them into penetrating conversation and storytelling in an intimate and casual setting as part of CENTERING THE MASSES in Little Tokyo.
All events below will be at 341 FSN (341 E 1st Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012).
FREE ADMISSION. Capacity is limited. Informal seating is available on a first come, first served basis.
