The extraordinary travel of Dragon

CONCEPT:

A documentary filmmaker has received from his family three old photo albums of his great uncle Yoshitomi. When doing the restoration and discovers that he documented his life from the years 30 to 1945, beginning when he was a soldier in the training camps at the foot of Mount Fuji until he was a prisoner in a prison camp in a Venezuelan town during the Second War World.

The extraordinary travel of the Dragon is a project from which three productions are generated:
1- The restoration of 3 photo albums by Yoshitomi Furuya.
2 - An Online Museum
3 - A film

The production process will be documented and will be integrated into the film.

The importance of this project lies in the fact that Yoshitomi Furuya, a Japanese immigrant to Latin America, was the only person who documented facts about the confinement of Japanese in Venezuela during World War II, this being in addition to the very little evidence of those that happened on the continent.
