Join us for our third night of our 15th annual Asian American Film Series where we will be screening, “Like a Rolling Stone: The Life and Times of
Ben Fong-Torres.”

“Like a Rolling Stone: The Life and Times of Ben Fong-Torres” is an inspirational portrait of the life and career of Rolling Stone magazine’s first music editor and legendary writer, during the great rock and roll era, when music meant more than entertainment. The film is told from Ben’s deeply personal point of view from the man who quite literally had the backstage pass. Long overdue – in fact, more than half a century – filmmaker/journalist Suzanne Joe Kai is pleased to finally tell his true story.

Q&A with Suzanne Joe Kai (Director, Producer, Writer) and Doug Blush (Executive Producer) will follow the screening.

Since 2010, SBTHP has presented the Asian American Film Series, a free event held on Fridays in July at the Alhecama Theatre. In an effort to explore the history and cultures of the Asian communities that once thrived in and around the Santa Barbara Presidio area, the series includes films that speak to the Asian American experience in the US. The films have addressed a broad range of historical and modern topics, such as the internment of Japanese Americans during WWII, Chinese American adoptions, and the contributions of key Asian American figures.

This event is free to attend for all SBTHP members, with a suggested $5 donation for non-members. Seating is first come, first served!

This film series is made possible by the generous support of the George H. Griffiths and Olive J. Griffiths Charitable Foundation.
