How Cultures Mesh . . . a Historical Character Study of the Japanese Immigration to Brazil
A beautifully filmed story of immigrants arriving in a foreign land, being exploited for their lack of knowledge and language and overcoming discrimination to forge a new life in a strange land. One of the movies I speak of to friends over and over again, a universal story with relevance to all those who find themselves seeking to fit in, to retain their dignity in the face of cruelty and racial and national bias.
It is based on the major migration of Japanese to the "New World", in particular Brazil, in the period after WW1. It deals with their exploitation in the agricultural sector of the Brazilian economy.
Hard to find. I saw it at a Film Society in Alaska in the late 80's. Hope it will be released someday soon in a locally viewable format.
