JUNE 5: Riverblue - Audience Choice Winner; "things to consider"
RIVERBLUE (directed by David McIllvride and Roger Williams), follows international river conservationist, Mark Angelo, as he spans the globe to infiltrate one of the world’s most polluting industries, fashion. Narrated by clean water supporter Jason Priestley, this groundbreaking documentary examines the destruction of our rivers, its effect on humanity, and the solutions that inspire hope for a sustainable future. This film poses a big question to its audiences: Can fashion save the planet?
JUNE 19: Proof of Loyalty: Kazuo Yamane and the Nisei Soldiers of Hawaii
Our final film of the Best of the Fest series. Proof of Loyalty: Kazuo Yamane and the Nisei Soldiers of Hawaii (directed by Lucy Ostrander and Don Sellers) tells the story of a Japanese American who played a crucial strategic role in World War II. He and his fellow Nisei from Hawaii combatted prejudice and discrimination to loyally serve their country. Their extraordinary service, mostly untold, ultimately changed the course of U.S. history.
