Distribution


There are two versions of the film, a 56-minute version and a 45-minute version.  Both can be used in educational and community settings, and are available through the Oregon Nikkei Endowment (O.N.E.) in Portland, Oregon. We have mastered a DVD and provide an online package with scene selections and captions plus "extras" - mini-films that expand on themes based on interviews that didn't get into the film; primary source materials including legal and historical documents.

 

Television: Oregon Public Broadcasting  aired the film on March 25, 2018.

 

Educational and Community organizations: We have worked with educators on developing lesson plans and a Study Guide for classroom and discussion group use. A copy of the completed film has been given to the Auraria Archives in Denver; the Oregon Historical Society; the University of Oregon; the University of Utah; the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles and other educational institutions upon request.
