More reaction to Kathryn's Washington Post opus tremendous... screenings in Japan and the US... and letters from our wonderful community of war bride families, students and friends. Step rrrr-right up and read all about it! eepurl.com/cidGqz
Our short 26-minute film was just the beginning - we are seeking donations and grants in order to more fully tell the Japanese war bride story in a new, one-hour documentary - and your help is crucial. Please write firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
BTW, that's Kathryn - the cute toddler on the right...
Karen shot new photos for the article, which was many months in the making. Please set aside plenty of time to explore the audio stories, which are just a part of Kathryn's collection... and will inform our next, full-length film on the brides.
Thrilled and honored to announce our film was selected best documentary short by the 15th Annual Asian Film Festival of Dallas!

Obama's historic trip to Hiroshima provided a fitting moment to remember the war brides, too, as Kathryn writes in the Washington Post: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-nation/wp/2016/05/27/remembering-hiroshima-stop-working-we-lost-the-war/?tid=a_inl
Over many years, F7GU8 friend Jonathan and his brother have amassed an astonishing assortment of personal stories, articles, photos and memorabilia that tell the story of that war. We were honored to get a mention on their site: http://awartobewon.com/wwii-media/japanese-war-brides/
