Eye opening
11 February 2002 | by (San Diego, CA) – See all my reviews

Japanese Americans may have received reparations from damages incurred during WWII but the events of the camp are long lasting, as shown in this movie. What an eye opener this movie is. I had thought that the JACL (Japanese American Citizen's League) was an organization that stood for the rights for Japanese Americans but from the movie it seems the group was hardly representative of the people. The clips from old news reels produced by the government showed the incredible effort that was put into making the general public believe that the camps consisted of "model homes" and that the prisoners were "evacuees" and that the Japanese people believed Uncle Sam to be a kind "master." The movie should be watched by all who wish to understand the power the government and the media has over history. It teaches people that history is owned and what we believe is true is oftentimes what we are allowed to believe is true. The only criticism that I have is that I wish there was a chance for members of the JACL to justify or refute what was said about them in the movie.
