"A Song for Ourselves," directed by award-winning filmmaker Tadashi Nakamura, is described as "an intimate journey into the life and music of Asian American Movement troubadour Chris Iijima."
This event is a benefit for the Chris Iijima Endowment to fund scholarships for the Law School's Ulu Lehua Scholars Program. September 24 will mark the Hawaiʻi premiere of this film, which created quite a stir when it premiered in Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and New York City.
