DisOrient 2017 Light - Pacific NW Premiere
Light (2017) Feature Narrative, Experimental - 57 min. - English  USA              

Director and Original Music Composer Tatsu Aoki
Producer and Choreographer Lenora Lee

Inspired by the life of Bessie M. Lee (1894 - 1955), who, after migrating to New York City, spent two years in indentured servitude, Light is a film in which dance, memory, music and poetry collide in a visual and aural landscape; a meditation on women being propelled into the unknown by courage and faith to risk their lives and everything they have for freedom. In Light, Aoki and Lee highlight the lives of women, including Bessie M. Lee, who through the resilience and triumph over unimaginable experiences, were grounding forces in the creation of the New York Chinatown community in the early 1900s.

Special Live Performance of dance by Choreographer Lenora Lee accompanied by Tatsu Aoki on Bass as an introduction to the film.  Program concludes with a post-screening Q&A with Aoki and Lee.
