A Gold Medal winner at the 38th Annual Student Academy Awards, Hiro is a short documentary explores the life of Hiroshi ‘Hiro’ Hoshizaki. A retired grandfather of six, Hiro was incarcerated at the Heart Mountain Relocation during his adolescence. As we follow him on his own journey to confront the events and memories of his past, we learn of his incarceration and the traumatic repercussions this experience has had on him and his family. Q&A with filmmaker to follow.
