Bainbridge filmmakers win Erik Barnouw Award
Husband and wife filmmaking team Don Sellers and Lucy Ostrander’s documentary “Honor & Sacrifice” has received the Erik Barnouw Award from the Organization of American Historians for outstanding programming in documentary film concerned with American history.
The Organization of American Historians is the major professional group for historians who study and teach about the United States. They annually present a small number of awards in recognition of scholarly and professional achievements in the field of American history. Only one is for a film, so the award is extremely competitive.
Past winners include distinguished filmmakers such as Ken Burns and Henry Hampton.
Sadly, Roy Matsumoto — the subject of the film — passed away on April 21. He was just shy of his 101st birthday.
“Honor & Sacrifice: The Roy Matsumoto Story,” is being shown on PBS throughout the month.
