It’s knowledge we keep inside of us – and that the world doesn’t always get a chance to see. Filmmaker Mark </span>Decena<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> is hoping to open a window onto that kind of family life with his new film, </span><em style="line-height: 1.5;">The War Inside</em><span style="line-height: 1.5;">, involving his own childhood home movies. The film is a project of the Center for Asian American Media, </span>CAAM<span style="line-height: 1.5;">, which is hosting its </span>31st<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> annual festival this year and launching a new national initiative to collect and preserve Asian American home movies.&nbsp; </span>KALW's<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> Ben </span>Trefny<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> spoke with </span>Decena<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> about the value of finally bringing these national memories to light, and </span>Decena's<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> personal contribution to the collection.</span></p><p> Tue, 19 Mar 2013 01:22:56 +0000 Ben Trefny 24593 at http://kalw.org Film festival opens a window to Asian American family life
