California Museum presents:

Uprooted! Japanese Americans During World War II

The California Museum’s longest running exhibit surveys a century of Japanese American history in California through the personal stories of formerly incarcerated Californians.

Although Japanese immigrants and their American-born children established businesses, built thriving communities and contributed to the state’s prosperity, they began to face hostility and discrimination following the bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.

Mary and the Witch’s Flower

Sunday, May 20, 2018

2:00 PM

Crocker Art Museum

Mary, a young girl with the summer doldrums, is by herself at her Great-Aunt Charlotte’s mansion. One day she follows a stray cat into the forest and discovers an old broomstick and a rare flower. The broomstick and flower are magical and allow Mary to fly into the sky and through the clouds to Endor College, a school of magic run by Madam Mumblechook and Dr. Dee. There are terrible things taking place at Endor and Mary risks her life to set things straight. Studio Ghibli’s master anime artist, Hiromasa Yonebayashi (The Secret World of Arrietty (2010), When Marnie Was There (2014)), has created a film with a unique story and stunning animation. (2017, 103 minutes)
