Directed by Emiko Omori in 1999, this is a 85-minute documentary about 120,000 Japanese Americans who were imprisoned in American Internment Camps during WWII.
In the early 1990s, Omori began a seven-year project on the effects of the World War II internment of the Japanese American community.
This documentary was written, directed, filmed, and narrated by Emiko Omori.
It was co-produced with her elder sister Chizuko, a Seattle writer who had been involved in the campaign to pass the Civil Liberties Act of 1988 which finally granted reparations to Japanese Americans for their internment.
It won the Best Documentary Cinematography Award at the 1999 Sundance Film Festival and an Emmy Award for Outstanding Historical Programming after it was broadcast on PBS.
