Yamagata Film Package to the World
The team YYWY is a film making team which is composed of the students of the Yamagata Prefectural Yamagata East Senior High School. They made a short film, “High school samurai,” under the theme of “telling the charms of Yamagata to the world.” Their goal is to conduct international exchange through cinema. In March 2020, we were planning an interactive project with a high school in Busan, Korea, however; the project has been suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic around the world.

The students of the Yamagata Prefectural Yamagata East Senior High School, who produced “High School Life in Yamagata,” also accompanied and interacted with high school students in Papua. After the screening, they also made a video call with Yamagata East Senior High School students for deepening their mutual understandings.
