Join the Northwest Nikkei Museum in our discussion with musician and artist Jason Okamoto from Portland, Oregon regarding his process of creating his short film released in June of 2022. The film, ‘1945 April 11th, Wednesday’, commemorates the diary kept by Jason’s grandfather, Takumi Okamoto, while incarcerated during World War II. The film features natural imagery and music, all shot and composed by Jason for the film which was made possible in part by funding from The Regional Arts and Culture Council. The short film will be screened at the beginning of the event followed by a discussion with the artist and a general Q&A at the end.
