Film Screening & Discussion: Nisei Stories of Wartime Japan

After the bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941, thousands of American citizens of Japanese ancestry who were in Japan at the time were barred from returning to the United States until after the war ended. Through ten interviews that encompass a range of perspectives, this documentary film takes an inside look at the experiences of the stranded American citizens.

Discussion to follow with mother-and-son filmmakers Mary McDonald and Thomas Mazawa,  whose own relatives’ stories inspired this film.
