Film Screening and Panel Discussion—Sleeping on Potatoes: A Lumpy Adventure from Manzanar to the Corporate Tower
The late Dr. Kaworu Carl Nomura was a brilliant Nisei physicist involved in some of the most notable technological advances of the 20th century, including the commercial production of silicon wafers for computer memory chips. In this short documentary shot by Ellen Frick in the later years of Nomura’s life, the scientist reflects on the social injustices he faced and his efforts to make a difference in the lives of others.
Screening will be followed by a panel discussion on Nomura’s life and contributions to society, featuring Carl’s daughter Teri Nomura and his nephew Art Nomura.
Free with museum admission. RSVPs are recommended using the link below.
