Short videos created by 2008 NJAHS interns.
NJAHS’ Japantown Heritage Tourism Initiative Summer Internship hopes to foster leadership and greater historical and cultural understanding for San Francisco Japantown to a broader audience from the perspective of the youth interns. This summer’s interns are Annie Kim Noguchi, Kevin Young Inouye, Rika Murase, Mark Rosenberg, Scott Yamada and Michelle Yonemoto. Led by filmmaker Lina Hoshino (“Caught in Between”), the NJAHS interns will create their own short films using pictures, video and narrative. The focus of the films is on an aspect of life and identity as a Japanese American youth and were completed over a three-day intensive workshop.
