Double Feature

0

Over 100 people attended a screening of two short documentaries — “Jeff Imada: Breaking Barriers by Design” by Cory Shiozaki and “Holiday Bowl” by Mitchell Matsumura — hosted by Greater Los Angeles JACL on Aug. 19 at Merit Park Recreation Hall in Gardena. The first film focuses on a Japanese American who has worked for decades in Hollywood as a stuntman, coordinating fights for such films as “Furious 7” and “Iron Man 3”; the second is about the Crenshaw District bowling alley and coffee shop that served as a community gathering place from 1958 to 2000. Both were shown during Visual Communications’ Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival last May.
