Many Moons (2022) is a hybrid documentary that asks questions about ghosts and placemaking today– looking at the history of Chinese expulsions in Humboldt County and the people who, often with the help of local tribes, continued to live in the county despite the threat of white violence. Directed by Chisato Hughes.
On loop from November 1-12, 2022.
Before coming to Santa Cruz, Chisato Hughes was an organizer with California Coalition for Women Prisoners, and HAPI, Humboldt Asians and Pacific Islanders in Solidarity. They believe in documentary as a site for empathy, a means for reckoning social histories and subjective relationships, and for bearing witness.
