1 Hour Photo by Tetsuro Shigematsu

I directed this show which was written and performed by Tetsuro Shigematsu along with musician Steve Charles, in October 2017.

1 Hour Photo is the story of Mas Yamamoto, a man whose life was swept up by the major currents of the 20th century. From growing up in a fishing village on the banks of the Fraser River, to being confined at a Japanese Canadian internment camp during World War II, to helping build the Distant Early Warning Line in the Canadian Arctic during the height of the Cold War. 1 Hour Photo uses live music, archival video, live and archival projections, miniatures and narration to create a vivid portrait of a man and his times.
