Q&A with film director Felicia Lowe


About the Film

Carved in Silence tells of the stories and experiences of immigrants detained at Angel Island Immigration Station. The director uses dramatic recreations filmed in the historic building and includes interviews with former detainees and immigration officers that were stationed on the island.


About the Series

The movie series is part this year’s migration program funded by our Title VI grant. Under the conceptual umbrella of “Global Asia,” which seeks to address diverse perspectives on pressing national and international issues, the program will address diverse migration-related issues and concerns through educational activities such as a movie series, workshops, and a spring conference.
