Great film
4 July 2008 | by See all my reviews

This is an excellent film that shows the difficult plight of the Japanese American citizens during World War II. The interviews are excellent and the story line is concise and captivating. I loved this documentary and would highly recommend it. Of particular interest is the director Eric Fournier's narrative structure of the film. The film seamlessly fades from present to past and back to present again. On the political message of the film, much has changed in the years since World War II; but that it took Fred Koramatsu nearly 50 years to receive his moral, political and legal vindication from the United States Government that had imprisoned him because of his ancestry during the great World War says much about our society then as well as today.
