Winner of both the prestigious 2005 "Chris Award" (High School & College Category) and the 2006 "Accolade" -- Award of Excellence - Documentary, "Citizen Tanouye" uniquely brings history to life for eight ethnically diverse Torrance, CA high school students through their research of Torrance High School alumnus Tech Sergeant Ted Tanouye and the impact the war had on their city, while drawing attention to the civil rights abuses of WWII era America.

While serving as a member of the renowned 442nd Regimental Combat Team, Tanouye's family was incarcerated in "Relocation Camps" at Jerome and later Rohwer, AR.  Ted's action in battle would eventually earn him the Medal of Honor.

During their investigation of high school yearbooks, newspapers, internet sites and insightful conversations with WWII veterans, the relevance of history is brought into focus as the students express their personal observations, draw parallels to their own lives and realize the affect that this experience will have on their future.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A and discussions with filmmaker Robert Horsting.  Co-sponsored by the Japanese American Association and the NYU Center for Media, Culture and History/Center for Religion and Media.

To attend, RSVP to apa.rsvp@nyu.edu or (212) 992-9653
