About a week ago I had the chance to do something I’ve been wanting to do (and bugging the filmmakers about for a long time) — finally go to a local screening of the documentary Hafu, meaning “half,” which represents 5 stories of mixed heritage Japanese folks navigating their multi/identities in Japan today.
“I was excited to talk to Jennifer Frappier this week about her documentary-in-progress, Chill. Chill is all about Jenni’s journey to discovering more about her fertility and the option of freezing her eggs for a future pregnancy if needed. She explains the project much better: “Chill is a documentary film about balancing life, career and cheating the biological clock.” Listen to the show here or download the episode from itunes (and make sure you subscribe too)!You’ll learn more about her as she joins me as a co-host in some upcoming podcast episodes!–Heidi Durrow”

On August 29, 1970, a “Chicano Moratorium” against the war in Vietnam was held in East L.A.
Loyola-Marymount film student Tom Myrdahl shot this documentary, capturing the events that unfolded as law enforcement and protesters clashed in and around Laguna Park. This film has not been seen in nearly 40 years.
Tom, who is still a working cameraman in Los Angeles, is putting this historic film on the web as a tribute to the brave citizens of East L.A. who came together 40 years ago to voice their dissent against the Vietnam War.
In the video:
- “Bronze people with a Bronze culture”
- “We’re not against the black people or the white people. We’re against oppression.”
Note: The Beret has been used as a symbol of fighting oppression going back to
- The British Royal Tank Corps going back to 1918
- Che Guevara as far back as 1959
- The Black Panther Party in 1966
