In the wake of the bombing of Pearl Harbor\, hundreds of thousands of Japanese Americans were\, by executive action\, evicted from their hom es and sent to barracks in isolated camps\, scattered across the United St ates. Many families\, including the fictional one portrayed in <em>No No G irl</em>\, didn't want to depart with their treasured possessions that wer e too big\, or otherwise unable to bring with them\, so they buried it. Af ter the war\, Japanese American families would return to their homes to fi nd them ransacked\, destroyed\, vandalized with racism and hate and someti mes even outright stolen. They would have to start again\, and move on. <e m>No No Girl</em> explores three generations of Japanese Americans who dis cover the existence of family heirlooms in a home that is no longer theirs . What it brings is more complicated than joy or relief because their plac e in history is complicated. In this film we explore identity and family\; nationality and pride. And watching our characters ask themselves: if it' s yours\, is it really stealing?
