Remembering Manzanar: A Documentary
Produced for the National Park Service
Through the use of rare historic footage and photographs, and personal recollections of a dozen former internees and others, Remembering Manzanar explores the experiences of more than 10,000 Japanese Americans who were incarcerated in a remote desert facility during World War II.
Created for use at the Interpretive Center at Manzanar National Historic Site, Remembering Manzanar gives viewers a sense of the place and its past, and a glimpse into a time when American citizens were exiled because of their ancestry.
Original score by Kazu and Keiko Matsui.
