The Orange Story is a digital history project that utilizes the power of cinematic storytelling to teach the history of Japanese American WWII confinement.
“Our goal is to reinvent the method by which this history is taught, and to provide educators with a teaching tool that speaks to the digitized way in which youth interact with information today. The Orange Story is just the first of a series of short narrative films that we plan to make; the finished program will span the entire history and legacy of WWII confinement, all the way up to the present day. The accompanying website will extend the experience of the film, housing historical content and curriculum guides to educators at no cost.”
The Orange Story has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise $16,000 by June 3rd. You can check out the description of the project in the video below. Be sure to visit the Kickstarter fundraising page for more information and to support their efforts in telling Japanese American stories!
