This short film program explores our tragic history of Japanese American internment camps during World War II. Some highlights include THE ORANGE STORY, the story of an elderly Japanese American who must sell all his belongings and report to an “assembly center” for internment assignment, and A SONG FOR MANZANAR, a true story about a young mother who tries to keep her young son hopeful in the Manzanar internment camp while trying to communicate with her sister who still lives in Hiroshima.
