A little slow, but this is an important history that every US citizen should know about.
30 October 2012 | by (China) – See all my reviews

I am surprised that I am the first one who is writing a review for this film after entire three years! Overall, this film is a little slow to watch. It shows a lot of photos. I think that it would be nice if they ask those people to tell us what those adults, children do in the camps everyday. And they could have also told us stories of other Japanese who lived in other camps, what their lives were like, etc. They could have gone beyond those photos, and gone into details, such as if the children can get books to learn, did they have their own schools, were those people allowed to go to hospitals if they were very sick, etc? In its extra, it has a cartoon about the history. It is a little offensive when they used slanted eyes to portrait Chinese. It listed four wrong things that the USA government did, it included the Japanese camps, but they didn't think that that fact that Chinese were also racially discriminated, banned from immigrating to the USA was one of the wrong things.
