Please join us for a screening of Kai Pacifico Eng’s senior project documentary on Executive Order 9066, the order signed by FDR that put 120,000 Japanese-Americans in American concentration camps along the West Coast. The documentary covers more than just the camps, however – it explores the experience of looking like the enemy during times of conflict, as well as Kai’s own personal experience of racism. Kai has just graduated from Bellevue Big Picture High School, a Bellevue School District grade 6-12 “choice” school that uses problem based learning and community internships to teach students while they explore and pursue their own passions. REGISTER HERE. Kai recently won a NW Regional Emmy award for his work on another documentary. Learn more here.
