This year’s event recognized the role of film and photography in documenting and preserving the events of WWII. A special screening of “Finding KUKAN” was held in the Museum’s theater, followed by a question and answer session with the documentary’s filmmaker, Hawaii resident Robin Lung. “Finding KUKAN” is an award-winning documentary that uncovers the forgotten story of Hawaii resident Li Ling-Ai, the uncredited female producer of “KUKAN,” an Academy Award-winning color documentary about WWII China that has been lost for decades.
