War Brides of Japan in Post-Post

Aloha, Hip Hapa Homeez!

We have good news and we have bad news. 

First, the bad. We still haven’t released our docu*MEMORY, “War Brides of Japan”, because we’re still tweaking it. 

But we’re very, very close.

Besides making the film available to you at online platforms, we’re also planning to screen at several upcoming film festivals.

The best places to stay updated about our activities are on the website and social media pages listed below. 

If you’re connected to a Japanese war bride, please join our Facebook page, “Japanese War Brides & Families & Friends”.

Meanwhile, the good news is that we've created a new trailer. Called “The Chase”, it features several Japanese war brides recalling how they met their GI husbands as well as several adult children talking about their parents.

Check it out!
