Groundbreaking and haunting, this film is a poetic composition of recorded history and nonrecorded memory. Director Rea Tajiri's family was among the 120,000 Japanese and Japanese Americans who were imprisoned in internment camps after the attack on Pearl Harbor. And like so many who were in the camps, their memories of that experience was wrapped in a shroud of silence and forgetting.
