JANM Digital Film Festival: Dodgers: Brotherhood of the Game Q&AFriday, July 10, 2020
6:00 PM — 7:00 PM
From their original roots in Brooklyn to today’s home in Los Angeles, the Dodgers are trailblazers in the world of sports, on and off the field. The franchise is dedicated to supporting a culture of winning baseball, providing a first-class, family-friendly experience at Dodger Stadium and maintaining strong partnerships in the community.
In 2014, JANM collaborated with the Los Angeles Dodgers and Peter O’Malley and Family to present the Dodgers: Brotherhood of the Game exhibition, which explored the team’s storied past through four players and a Hall of Fame manager, each of whom made history in his own right: Jackie Robinson, Fernando Valenzuela, Chan Ho Park, Hideo Nomo, and Tommy Lasorda.
JANM’s Watase Media Arts Center produced five short documentaries in conjunction with the exhibition. Watch the films at janm.org/dodgers/videos or on JANM’s YouTube channel, then join the exhibition’s co-curators—Dodgers’ team historian Mark Langill and Koji Steven Sakai—for a Q&A moderated by Chris Komai that will be streamed live on JANM’s YouTube channel. They will discuss the impact of Hideo Nomo on Major League Baseball, what it was like for him, and what his success meant in Japan and to Japanese Americans. They will also talk about the enduring legacies of the other featured individuals.
