Storyline

Documentary film version of the stage show in which actress Cynthia Gates Fujikawa explores the story of her father, actor Jerry Fujikawa, who had a long career in films and television, most often as a stereotyped Asian. The daughter, in the course of searching out her late father's history, discovers many things that she had not known, among them that her father had spent time in Manzanar, the internment camp for Japanese-Americans during World War II, that he had had a family prior to hers, and that somewhere out there was a sister she had never known existed.

A Touching and Personal Social Justice Story
4 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was quite affected by the artfully acted and told story of a complex man who was strongly affected by one of the worst instances of abuse of human rights in the racist history of the United States. It is much more personal than "The Manzanar Fishing Club" and "The Searchlight Serenade" and almost as thought provoking as "Conscience and Constitution." The one woman stage performance is augmented by stills and video that unwind the complex story in a way that brings both awareness and tears, and adds notes, chords, and discords forever to the song Old Man River. The additional material maps the story into the enemy combatant discrimination and prejudice against those suspected of being Muslim following the 911 attack.
