About the Film: Zainichi is a two-part documentary, and the first and one of the most comprehensive visual accounts of Zainichi Korean history. The film traces back Korean migration under the Japanese colonial occupation and the struggles that followed in post-war Japan. It also discusses the ways in which the Japanese constitution intentionally excluded the remaining Koreans from its protection, which is the root of inequality and discrimination Zainichi Koreans face to this day. Zainichi came out in 1997 to mark the 50th anniversary of the liberation of the Korean peninsula.

Eastside Arts Alliance is dedicated to nurturing and supporting the work of the Lower-San Antonio District’s African American, Latino/Chicano, Asian/Pacific Islander, and Indigenous artists and cultural workers, many of whom have not found a home within Oakland’s mainstream arts community.
