Screening the Film
If your organization would like to screen A Most Unlikely Hero, we would love to make the program available to you. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know about your organization, when and where you would like to show the film, and what format (DV, VHS, DVD) you prefer.
Because our goal is to spread the word about Capt. Yamashita's story, screening fees are nominal, and below typical market levels.
Additionally, the film's director and/or Capt. Yamashita can appear in person to lend their unique personal perspectives to this important story. Please write us for further information!
Purchasing the Film
Please see our Order the Film page for complete information on how you can obtain a copy of A Most Unlikely Hero for private, home use or for educational purposes.
