An insightful and interesting documentary
24 February 2002 | by (Champaign, Illinois) – See all my reviews

Quite honestly, I had no expectations for this movie before I saw it, but I admit that I was pleasantly surprised. This story about a woman's quest to uncover a hidden piece of her history made me re-evaluate the way I think about America's past. I was surprised after I saw the movie how many people were upset that they thought the film hand-fed them the story of the Japanese internment during WWII. In reality, the documentary was a statement of historical fact. The winners write the history, and for many years, American historians have brushed passed this time in our past. Tajiri compiled a history of her family and other internees - documenting their history with the hope that it will be remembered as well. This movie isn't trying to force history on the viewers, but to create a documentation of history where one didn't exist before - and to make sure it is remembered.
