Finding Home is about Japanese Americans who have decided to live in Japan rather than America. It examines what they have gained and lost with this decision. The six Japanese Americans interviewed were selected from an initial pool of fifty. Comments about lifestyle, identity, and personal evolution provide fresh insight into the expatriate experience of those who have chosen to live in their ancestral homeland. Additionally Nomura, a first-time visitor to Japan at age fifty-seven, shares his impressions of Japan throughout the documentary. With the support of a Fulbright Research Grant, Nomura spent the fall/winter of 2003 producing this project.

Finding Home is an official selection of the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival, the Rhode Island International Film Festival, the Dallas Video Fest, the DisOrient Film Festival and the Fukuoka Asian Film Festival. Art Nomura is a Professor in the School of Film and Television at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. Please visit www.artnomura.com for more information about the artist and his work.
