Using old photographs, Super 8mm film and FBI documents, a Japanese American filmmaker tells the story of her family’s struggle to prove their American identities during World War II. Standing in flux between the identity of “Alien” and “Citizen," Mika Yatsuhashi explores the effect of her family’s Japanese immigrant history on her American identity today.
