Events of Interest

Don’t miss the Ninth Asian American Film Series presented by the Santa Barbara Trust for Historic Preservation!

The Asian American History Committee is dedicated to exploring the Nihonmachi and Chinatown that emerged out of the ruins of the Santa Barbara’s Spanish fort period in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Each July over four Friday evenings, we host three public screenings of films that speak to the Asian American experience in the western US. Film selections address a broad range of historical and modern topics, such as the internment of Japanese Americans during WWII, Chinese American adoptions, and the contributions of key Asian American figures. This film series is made possible by the generous support of the George H. Griffiths and Olive J. Griffiths Charitable Foundation.

When:  July 6 thru July 27, 2018

Where:  Alhecama Theatre, El Presidio de Santa Barbara State Historic Park
