NETWORK OF ENTERTAINING ASIAN AMERICAN TALENT
Dear friends and family,
I am very happy to announce that the PILGRIMAGE DVD is finally finished and available for purchase! I want to apologize for taking so long to finish the DVD but I don’t think you’ll be disapointed once you see it. I would also really like to thank all of you for coming out to see the film and supporting me and the PILGRIMAGE project. I can’t express how much your support has encouraged and inspired me to continue making films about our community. Please read the details below on what is included in the DVD and how to purchase them.
I would greatly appreciate if you could send this e-mail out to anyone who you think might be interested in screening or purchasing PILGRIMAGE. I am trying to make the film as accessible as possible and any help you could provide would be great. I would really be interested in hearing about any ideas you may have regarding outreach, press, orgs/groups screenings, educators/schools who might want to use the film, etc. If you have any ideas please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you again for your continued support!

ABOUT THE FILM:
“A powerfully moving piece on the dehumanization and dislocations of war, and the community and hope that can be found in resistance.”
— Jeff Chang, Author of Can’t Stop Won’t Stop: A History of the Hip Hop Generation
“Tad Nakamura’s inspiring new film opens up the Japanese American experience ofto a new generation of multicultural activists.”
— Yuri Kochiyama, Asian American Activist
PILGRIMAGE tells the inspiring story of how a small group of Japanese Americans in the late 1960s uncovered their lost history and created thePilgrimage, transforming the once-abandoned WWII American concentration camp into a vibrant symbol of retrospection and solidarity for people of all ages, races and nationalities in our post 9/11 world.
