Digital Storytelling: Film Screening and Discussion

JANM and the Heart Mountain Wyoming Foundation (HMWF) will co-host a screening of spoken word videos inspired by the Japanese American Incarceration during World War II and recorded at the 2017 Heart Mountain Pilgrimage in collaboration with filmmakers Jeff MacIntyre and David Ono. Pilgrimage participants, ranging in age from 16 to 75, were guided by spoken word artist G Yamazawa in bringing their stories to life and the videos touch on subjects such as the ever-present sand in camp, the seizure of land, love, and commitment.

A panel discussion with the filmmakers and a reception hosted by the Japanese American Confinement Sites Consortium, JANM HMWF, and the Japanese American Citizens League will take place immediately following the screening.  RSVP here!
