El México mas Cercano a Japón
Directed by Shinpei Takeda

This 50-minute video documentary reveals a rather unknown history of the Japanese community in Tijuana that has existed since the 1920s. The documentary weaves the images taken by the first Japanese photographer of Tijuana in the 20s with testimonials from the first, second, and third generations. The film also highlights the plight of the Japanese community during World War II. It is a story of historical and contemporary economic and cultural connections between Japan and Tijuana.
