Project Description

An Immersive Live Event Daring Us To Live Courageously

Defining Courage is an emotionally gripping journey into the legacy of the Nisei Soldier, a segregated combat team of Japanese Americans, namely, the 100th/442nd, considered the greatest fighting unit in American military history, yet most have never heard of them.

Fly over World War II battlefields in Italy, France, Germany and Japan, in an immersive multimedia presentation/live event that includes stunning cinematography, live music, historic film, new footage and eyewitness interviews.

See, hear, and EXPERIENCE their incredible heroics through this masterpiece of innovative storytelling. Far from a history lesson, it’s a demonstration about inner strength, one that inspires us in our search for courage in today’s world.

Working with partner organizations, our goal is share this live show with as many people as possible. Please check out the show’s website for up-to-date info:

Celebrate the Legacy of True American Heroes

We’re humbled by the reaction from people who’ve experienced Defining Courage:

Knew very little of the story going in. Blew me away with the artistry, craft and storytelling. I was stunned by the live elements such as the vocalists and instrumentation, and how seamlessly it was integrated with the edited footage AND the soundbites of the documentary and narration. Much deserved standing ovation at the end…not a dry eye in sight. Thank you for creating and sharing this important work! Chris L. – Award-Winning Filmmaker

Thank you for creating and performing “Defining Courage”. It was magnificent in highlighting these significant stories in history. I was moved to tears…It exceeded expectations and was well worth the three hour drive to see it. I will remember it the rest of my life. Lois – Los Angeles, CA

The story witnessed in Defining Courage is one that sits forever in your soul. Kim Godwin – President, ABC News
