New Documentary Chronicles OWWCC’s Delegation to Manzanar




A new short documentary titled “What They Could Carry…Return to Manzanar” tells the story of the Only What We Can Carry Delegation to Manzanar in 2012. The video was filmed and produced by videographer and EduCulture Board Member Brenda Berry and colleague Scott Rouse.

The documentary features OWWCC’s 4th delegation of former internees and current Island educators and community leaders, who together retraced the historic 1942 forced relocation of the Bainbridge Island Japanese Community to the former Manzanar Relocation Center, in Independence, California.

This wonderfully filmed, 13-minute video brings the visit to life and tells some of the personal stories of those impacted by this historical event.  We are so grateful to Brenda and Scott for their excellent work and tremendous contribution to preserving the valuable stories from these journeys of bearing witness and discovery.
