Katahdin Productions in Berkeley, California, is in the process of creating a television series on America and the Korean War and is seeking contacts in Hawaii for possible interviews at the end of June. The four-part series, titled America and the Korean War, is intended for public television and will remember the Korean War through the stories of everyday Americans who experienced it first hand.
The producers want to interview a wide variety of individuals with a diverse relationship to the Korean War, including journalists who reported on the war, women veterans, war brides, war orphans, civil servants, and ordinary citizens who have interesting stories to tell about how the war affected their lives.
Katahdin Productions is a nonprofit documentary production company founded by Lisa Thomas, co-founder and former CEO of Clif Bar, Inc. Based in Berkeley and Los Angeles. Katahdin’s mission is to tell compelling stories often ignored by mainstream media–stories that inform, inspire, and engage. Among recent projects co-produced or supported by Katahdin is In the Matter of Cha Jung Hee. For more information, see www.katahdinproductions.com.
