Cultural Genome Project
The mission of the Cultural Genome Project is to celebrate and commemorate multi-generations of American histories through the simple, but sometimes forgotten, human interaction of asking and listening. Our goal is to create an easy-to-access methodology to preserve, share, catalog and ultimately, connect personal narratives through the powerful media of film. Through the Cultural Genome Project, we will preserve historical facts but also celebrate the tradition of story-telling and memory-passing. We begin our endeavor with Korean-Americans who are passing away before being able to share their stories with their family members in North Korea, a closed country.
