Event Details

koraci_1_300Join us at the Oakland Museum of California, Oak and 10th Street, Oakland (1000 Oak Street, Oakland, CA 94607)  for an 8PM  film screening of the recently premiered 45 minute documentary, Croatian Stories - Tales of Croatian Heritage in California by film maker Chip Curry of Chrysalis Films.  The screening is part of the the popular First Fridays After Five program at the Museum. The film is about 11 Croatians living in the San Francisco Bay Area. Curry interviewed these Croatian Americans of all ages from diverse walks of life and recorded their responses to questions such as: When, why and how did your family first arrive in the Bay Area? What aspects of Croatian culture are the most meaningful to you and why? What are your hopes for future generations of Croatian Americans? Curry interwove these recorded interviews with footage from the respondents’ daily lives, documentary photographs and other visual effects to create a moving 45 minute film. For more information about the First Fridays after Five program call 510-238-3818  

The project made possible, in part by a grant from the California Council for the Humanities as part of the Council's statewide California Stories Initiative.
