‘A Flicker in Eternity’ to Be Screened at Oxy

Stanley Hayami’s writings and drawings are the basis for “A Flicker in Eternity.”

“A Flicker in Eternity” will be screened on Tuesday, Sept. 19, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Choi Auditorium on the Occidental College campus, 1600 Campus Rd. in Los Angeles.

The documentary is the coming-of-age tale of Stanley Hayami (1925-1945), a talented teenager caught between his dream of becoming a writer/artist and his duty to his country. Based on Hayami’s own diary and letters, this film is the first-hand account of a 15-year-old thrust into the turmoil of World War II and is a poignant reminder of the indignity of incarceration and the tragedy of war.
