FilAmCreative.org is proud to host “The Valor Project: World War II Stories from the Philippines” this week as they raise money for their documentary film on Kickstarter. This week we will be featuring content from the making of the film by the filmmaker, Rodney Cajudo. – FilAm Creative
This story telling project will use different mediums of art; a documentary film, photography, fiction, poems, and creative non-fiction. The documentary will feature interviews with veterans of WWII, scholars, and people who lived through WWII. The art book will contain portrait photographs of the vets, as well as fiction stories that have been inspired by tales of the vets, and creative non-fiction pieces talking about different aspects of that era. The Valor Project will capture as many stories from the veterans to ensure their legacy lives on for generations to come.
In recent years other aspects of World War II have been told in movies and documentaries, like Band of Brothers, Saving Private Ryan, and The Pacific, but the tales of those that lived and fought in the Philippines during World War II haven’t been as heralded. It is our hope that through art and technology The Valor Project can be a bridge to between the past and the future generations and be a definitive repository of oral history of this era of in history.
