2013 marks the 71st Anniversary of Executive Order 9066

Voices of Internment: Seven Decades Later is a HD documentary film project intended for broadcast on PBS and public television.

The one hour program will show how the Internment of 120,000 American citizens and people of Japanese descent still impacts those citizens today, and how many are still coming to terms with healing the internalized shame, anger and pain.  Witnessing present day pilgrimages by former internees and their descendants to several former prison sites will provide context for the history of the generation of Japanese Americans whose civil rights were denied and their ensuing loss of property, means of livelihood, family life, dignity and sometimes their lives.  As these survivors’ numbers are dwindling 70 years later, it is important for their voices to be seen, heard and to pass on their lessons for today’s American citizens of all ancestries.
