Korean War Documentary Makers Seek Contacts in Hawaii

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.
