Edmonds CC will host a film screening and discussion to honor Japanese American World War II veterans. The screening will include the films “Honor & Sacrifice: The Roy Matsumoto Story” and “Proof of Loyalty: Kazuo Yamane and the Nisei Soldiers of Hawai’i.” Lucy Ostrander and Don Sellers, who directed and produced the two movies, will speak on a panel alongside Joyce Yamane and Karen Matsumoto, daughters of the veterans featured in the films. The event will be held one day after the national Day of Remembrance, which commemorates the incarceration of 120,000 Japanese Americans during World War II.
