Ian McCluskey, Writer and Director for the NW Documentary Project, began his documentary career with a clear commitment to telling stories of NW culture, history and community.
His most recent production Sun Gu Ja: A century of Korean Pioneers retraces the 100-year history of Korean Immigration through first-hand stories, rare archive, and original footage, and features specially-composed and traditional music performed by Korean-Americans.

Among these are four-part documentary series Innocence in an Age of Infamy: Teenagers' Experiences of WWII, the 16-part HUGO award-winning series American Literature, American Passages: A literary Survey, as well as Growing UP & Growing Old: Caring for our Parents, winner of a Chris Award and nominated for an Emmy.
