parents in 1942, the year internment of Japanese Americans began. He
recently transferred from his Chinese school to the exclusive American
Rainier Elementary on a “scholarship,” which requires him to serve the
other children in the school cafeteria every day, another factor setting
him apart. His parents, wanting him to become more American, are
delighted he’s attending this school. They insist he speak only English
and wear a button that says “I am Chinese.”

the opening pages of Jamie Ford’s stunning debut novel, Hotel on the
Corner of Bitter and Sweet, Henry Lee comes upon a crowd gathered
outside the Panama Hotel, once the gateway to Seattle’s Japantown. It
has been boarded up for decades, but now the new owner has made an
incredible discovery: the belongings of Japanese families, left when
they were rounded up and sent to internment camps during World War II.
As Henry looks on, the owner opens a Japanese parasol.
simple act takes old Henry Lee back to the 1940s, at the height of the
war, when young Henry’s world is a jumble of confusion and excitement,
and to his father, who is obsessed with the war in China and having
Henry grow up American. While “scholarshipping” at the exclusive Rainier
Elementary, where the white kids ignore him, Henry meets Keiko Okabe, a
young Japanese American student. Amid the chaos of blackouts, curfews,
and FBI raids, Henry and Keiko forge a bond of friendship–and innocent
love–that transcends the long-standing prejudices of their Old World
ancestors. And after Keiko and her family are swept up in the
evacuations to the internment camps, she and Henry are left only with
the hope that the war will end, and that their promise to each other
will be kept.
Forty years later, Henry Lee is certain that the
parasol belonged to Keiko. In the hotel’s dark dusty basement he begins
looking for signs of the Okabe family’s belongings and for a long-lost
object whose value he cannot begin to measure. Now a widower, Henry is
still trying to find his voice–words that might explain the actions of
his father; that might bridge the gap between him and his modern,
Chinese American son; words that might help him confront the choices he
made years ago.
Set during one of the most conflicted and
volatile times in American history, Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and
Sweet is an extraordinary story of commitment and enduring hope. In
Henry and Keiko, Jamie Ford has created an unforgettable duo whose story
teaches us of the power of forgiveness and the human heart.

Assignment 6 Prompt:
Write the opening (first 2 pages) of your screenplay IN SCREENPLAY FORMAT. Also submit a cover page with your logline and the cast list for your Week 7 Zoom table read.

This will get you started on your writing, and let your us guide you as you familiarize yourself with correct formatting, which is crucial to being taken seriously as a screenwriter.
You will be using these first two pages as the basis for your table read during the live Zoom workshop next week. Your Assignment 6 submission should include a cover page that lists all the cast members in these two pages as well as your logline. That will make it much easier to cast your classmates during the session.

As you decide how to begin your story, bear in mind that you want to capture your audience from the first frame. You don’t have to begin by introducing your protagonist, but for novice writers, it’s not a bad idea. Make us care about your main character and put him/her in a predicament where it’s easy for us to invest emotionally in them.
Also use this exercise to get to know your protagonist better. Perhaps it will inspire changes in your screenplay as you continue to write and rewrite.
