a song for ourselves screening in new york

If you're in New York, you must check out the East Coast premiere of Tad Nakamura's short documentary A Song For Ourselves, about the life and work of activist/musician Chris Iijima. It'll be screening this Friday, March 27, 7:00pm at Manhattan Country School, where Chris was an elementary school teacher for ten years.

To honor his life and work, an endowed fund in Chris Iijima's name was started to support faculty development, the promotion of innovative curriculum and the unique sliding scale tuition policy which makes it possible for children of all economic backgrounds to attend Manhattan Country School. All proceeds from this even will benefit the Chris Iijima Fund.

Director Tad Nakamura will be in attendance for a Q&A after the screening. To RSVP and request tickets, go here. I got all this information from an email that was forwarded to me, so I'm not sure about further details. To learn more about A Song For Ourselves, go here.
