During World War II, Japanese American soldiers of the 442nd Infantry Regiment fought not only the enemy but also prejudice and racial discrimination in the U.S. Theirs was an ironic situation, fighting for a country that had branded them as enemies. But these young men bravely volunteered and proven their loyalty as patriotic Americans. By the end of the war, the 442nd had become one of the most decorated regiments for its size and length of service in the history of the U.S. military.

Following director Junichi Suzuki's previous film Toyo's Camera, which traced the experiences of Japanese Americans during World War II, this film uses archival footage and interviews with regiment members to reveal the 442nd’s little-known history.

Reservations recommended to rsvp@janm.org or 213.625.0414 at least 48 hours prior.
