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.
