With the support of a Fulbright Research Grant\, Nomura spent the fall/winter of 2003 producing this project.\n\nFinding Home is an offi cial 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 Profes sor in the School of Film and Television at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles.
