Platinum TRIBUTES™ - Video Tributes, Tribute Videos, Memorial Video Tributes, Video Production, Palm Springs



In April 2015, the coachella valley's foremost professional theatre company, coachella valley repertory theatre presented HOLD THESE TRUTHS, a solo play by jeanne sakata, starring blake kushi, and directed by cvrep artistic director, ron celona. 

"the play is based on the true story of Gordon hirabayashi, an american sociologist best known for his principled resistance to the Japanese-american internment during wwii.  In may 2012, gordon hirabayashi was posthumously awarded our nation's highest civilian honor, the presidential medal of freedom."

This brilliant production of hold these truths inspired john lugar productions to produce this short film to both honor the victims of this incarceration, and to help us to never forget this episode in our nation's history.

We would be equally privileged to assemble such a presentation for you from your historical photo archives.


"Dear John-i am so pleased that our production of jeanne's play inspired you to create more art. the photo and music tribute is quite beautiful and moving. Thank you for sharing it with me and I will share it with our team. look forward to seeing you next season."

"WOW. what was remarkable about this montage, was it not only depicted the sad journey of our japanese-americans, but that it did it with veracity and courage. also, you captured the angst and hope and moments of joy that became their companions throughout this trying soujourn."
