Most Honorable Son

A film by Bill Kubota

After the Pearl Harbor attack, a Nebraska farmer named Ben Kuroki volunteered for the U.S. Army Air Corps. He would become the first Japanese American war hero, surviving 58 missions as an aerial gunner over Europe, North Africa and Japan. Between his tours of duty he would find himself at the center of controversy—a lone spokesman against the racism faced by the thousands of Japanese Americans sent to internment camps. Through interviews and rare, never-before-seen film, Most Honorable Son tells of one man’s remarkable journey through World War II, while providing context to two seemingly disparate histories—the U.S. air war and the Japanese American experience.
