We are honored to have the music video of Taiyo Na’s Lovely to Me (Immigrant Mother) opening and closing the DisOrient Asian American Film Festival. The festival is quite unique not only to Eugene, Oregon but around the country. DisOrient is a social justice film festival focusing on films that transform and redefine the meaning of Asians in America by bringing to the screen films that create change in our communities. We are very proud to be sharing the festival with many filmmakers that I admire and know including Masahiro Sugano with his film Second Moon.
Whether your Asian or not these films are universally inspiring and I know Taiyo and the Asian Arts Initiative community are thrilled and humbled to be part of the opening and closing of this festival. We hope those local to the Eugene, Oregon area can catch our film on the big screen. To catch the final showing of “Lovely to Me (Immigrant Mother)” go to the DisOrient Film Schedule.
