A beautiful reminder of an ugly part of American history. We must learn from past mistakes. History is lost within two generations unless something is done to memorialize the event. Internment of Japanese Americans had a direct and lasting effect on my family. The global accolades for this film are well deserved.
I love this director’s works. This is only one of a set of films done by Bruce Tetsuya and his magical crew. There is something for everyone in this film and I recommend watching it at least five times so you can fully appreciate all the intricacies within. Glorious cinematography combined with practical special effects are a visual treat. The soundtrack and dancers blend together to help unravel the mystery of the film.
