History through Film: Film Screening of The Dragon Painter
The Coronado Historical Association, in partnership with the Coronado Island Film Festival, presents The Dragon Painter (1919). The screening will be held on April 13 at 5:00 pm.
This much-celebrated film was inducted into the prestigious National Film Registry in 2014 and stars silent-era heartthrob Sessue Hayakawa. In this romance drama, Hayakawa plays Tatsu, a wild man and genius who becomes a master painter’s disciple, but loses his divine gift when he finds love in the master’s daughter Ume-Ko, played by Hayakawa’s wife Tsuru Aoki. This black-and-white film features the exquisite Coronado Japanese Tea Garden as a lush backdrop for the couple’s happy moments with many scenes also filmed in Yosemite National Park.
Despite being filmed here in Coronado’s Japanese Tea Garden over 103 years ago, this film will be screened for the first time in Coronado at the historic Village Theater. This silent film is accompanied by a complete score by Japanese-American composer Mark Izu. Run-time is 53 minutes. The screening of this film is in collaboration with the Coronado Historical Association exhibit.
The five-day pedestrian-friendly festival offers a slate of more than 80 films cultivated from a diverse selection of genres, plus compelling panels, lively workshops, and of course, parties! Over the bridge from downtown San Diego, a world-class destination presents a world-class celebration for cinematic art!
