About the Program
In this poignant documentary, watch six Japanese American adults reflect on the traumatic effects of having been forcibly removed from their homes and incarcerated as children during World War II.
Following the screening, listen as filmmaker and psychotherapist Satsuki Ina, PhD, who was born in an incarceration camp in 1944, discusses the psychological trauma of immigrant detainees in America today with Carmen G. Iguina, staff attorney at the ACLU of Southern California.
In the film, Dr. Ina leads the subjects through an intensive group therapy session over three days. As they share their family stories, they develop strategies to cope with their harrowing childhood experiences.
The documentary also features archival photography and film footage. (1999, 57 min. No MPAA rating.)
