The Claudia Kishi Club Reunion

Jan 23, 2021 @ 2:00 pm 3:30 pm


Join filmmaker, Sue Ding, and the cast of the documentary THE CLAUDIA KISHI CLUB, Naia Cucukov, Sarah Kuhn, Gale Galligan, CB Lee, Yumi Sagukawa, and Phil Yu, in a discussion of the legacy of Claudia Kishi, the iconic Japanese American character from the hit Baby-Sitters Club book series. These Asian American artists, writers, and creatives will discuss how Claudia inspired them, a generation of young readers of color, to create new stories of their own. Clips from the documentary short will be shown and discussed.

THE CLAUDIA KISHI CLUB, available now on Netflix, is a love letter to Claudia Kishi. With nostalgic readings, personal recollections, and DIY style stop motion collages, this film is a timely and unique exploration of the importance of representation in media.
