Tokio Story
2018, video, 8:00

A film remembering Tokio Florist (1929-2006), a floral shop run by Frank and Sumi Kozawa in Silverlake, Los Angeles. Once a popular business among the Hollywood and Japanese American community, it is now pressured for redevelopment after Sumi passed away last year, leaving Susie, their only daughter, to move out of the home she grew up in.

This film is a production of the Watase Media Arts Center at JANM.
