Directors statement

Never Forget

With everyone in Hollywood talking about the awakening of “Asian Americans” in cinema I think it is time the world hears the untold story of Asian American Internment. During WWII hundreds of thousands of Asian Americans were forced into internment camps here in America.

I have a passion for history, especially events that most people are unaware of or choose to ignore due to guilt. I knew nothing about what the Asian American, mainly the Japanese Americans faced during WWII. My grandfather former chief of the Ottawa tribe, a federally recognized tribe, told me stories similar to the internment during WWII.

The hardships these families faced while their fathers, brothers, and husbands enlisted in the U.S. Army, to fight Nazi Germany, were beyond belief. The Irony of the U.S. government delivering the final remains and an award to a mother imprisoned in an internment camp in California.

In this political climate, It is time Hollywood and the world see’s the mistakes of the past, so we can heal and never make the same mistakes ever again.
