Executive producers: Karen L. Ishizuka & Robert A. Nakamura. Editor: John Esaki.

From Japan to California, on to Paris, then to concentration camps in Arkansas that transformed his art forever and finally to New York, Henry Sugimoto (1900-1990) pursued what he called, “the path of an artist.” Sugimoto’s recently translated memoirs, brought to life by Academy Award nominated actor Mako, reveal the artist’s own journey through his life and art. Features his paintings and sketches, rare archival footage, and film of the artist just before his death.

Produced for the exhibition Henry Sugimoto: Painting an American Experience. 30 min. Color VHS. For home use only.

AWARDS: 22nd Annual Telly Awards, Bronze Statuette, 2001; The Videographer Awards, Award of Distinction, 2001
