This experimental documentary film chronicles Janice Tanaka ’s 50-year personal search for a father she has not seen since she was three years old. As a young man, the FBI arrested him for opposing the internment and diagnosed him as schizophrenic with paranoid tendencies. Tanaka finally finds him in a halfway house for the chronically mentally ill in Los Angeles’s skid row. Dr. Donna Nagata  (University of Michigan, Author of Legacy of Injustice: Exploring the Cross-Generational Impact of the Japanese American Internment ) offers a post-screening conversation on the study of Japanese Americans and the psychosocial consequences of the World War II incarceration and historical trauma.
