[AUDIO] Screening and Discussion of Farewell to Manzanar with special appearance by Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston

The 1976 made-for-TV film Farewell to Manzanar, written by Jeanne Wakatsuki and James Houston and directed by John Korty, was the first commercial film written, performed, photographed, and scored by Japanese Americans about the World War II camp experience. Based on the book by Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston, who was just seven years old when her family was sent to live at Manzanar, it is the story of one Japanese American family’s experience. Originally broadcast on primetime television but rarely seen for the past 35 years, the film is a modern classic about the effects of war on youth and the human spirit. JANM is pleased to present this historical film in a special Conference screening.
