OSPI Grant Provides Documentary Films to ESDs

Four films about the World War II experience of Japanese Americans in Washington State have been licensed for use by all Washington ESDs. The films, which have all appeared on PBS, were produced by Bainbridge Island’s Stourwater Pictures and are licensed through OSPI’s Kip Tokuda Memorial Washington Civil Liberties Public Education Program grant.

The closed-captioned films are now available for streaming via Vimeo.

Free curriculum is available to download for The Red Pines and My Friends Behind Barbed Wire. Curriculum for the remaining films is being developed and will be released later this year.
