The Resting Place
“The Resting Place” tells the story of how the Vietnamese community in Tacoma came together to establish a shared cemetery to honor members who have passed. Through the establishment of the Vietnamese Community for Mutual Support of Pierce County, Washington, leaders in the community partnered with a local cemetery to honor the important passage from life to death.
The film is one installment in the Chinese Reconciliation Project Foundation’s “Our Communities, Our Neighbors” film series. Funded by Tacoma Creates, CRPF is working with cultural communities in Tacoma to create short films that tell stories about these communities, shaped through active participation by community members.
The Chinese Reconciliation Project Foundation (CRPF) is a nonprofit organization that advances civic harmony by way of the Tacoma Chinese Garden and Reconciliation Park on Schuster Parkway along Commencement Bay.
