Sue Sada Was Here
(Cindy Mochizuki, Vancouver, BC, 2018, 9 min)

Sue Sada Was Here is an experimental film that turns written texts Muriel Kitagawa (19121974) into scores of physical movement, which are then enacted in the historic Roedde House. Kitagawas editorial writing and unpublished manuscripts speak to the pre- and post-war periods in Vancouver, particularly the injustices of the Canadian governments policies towards Japanese and Japanese Canadians. The performers embody Sue Sada, one of Kitagawas pen names and use books as objects of print history that can omit histories of violence and colonialism. This film was originally commissioned for Memories of the Future III.

Winner of Best in Show Award at Cadence: Video Poetry Festival 2020 [Online].
