We are humbled to have created the logo and visual style of the DVD package and website for this groundbreaking film. A statement from the filmmaker about Nisei Stories is here:
"Thousands of American citizens of Japanese ancestry were in Japan in 1941. They were unable to return to the United States until after the Second World War had ended. Interviews filmed for Nisei Stories of Wartime Japan allow a few of them to relate their experiences in their own words. This documentary reveals the reasons that these Americans were in Japan, often related to social customs and political conditions in the 1930’s and early 1940’s. It details struggles with food shortages, bombing raids, conscription into the Japanese military, and survival that affected everyone in Japan at that time. Interviewees recall coming home to families who had been relocated and returning to a much changed post-war United States."
