About this submission
I wanted to tell this story because uncovering my Japanese American history has deeply impacted me and the way I see my identity. I wanted to be able to communicate the emotions about my identity as an Asian American that I've felt throughout my entire life, and how I was impacted by learning about this history. Making this film was such a revelatory experience for me and I wanted to help others experience the same thing. I wanted to demonstrate the power of history on the present day.
