View several short docudramas about Japanese-Americans during World War II. The films include "The Orange Story," about the owner of a small corner grocery store who must abandon everything when he is forcibly removed from his west coast home and "Tadaima" (I'm Home) the story of a Japanese-American family trying to rebuild their lives after returning home from an American prison camp during World War II.

Jason Matsumoto, executive producer of "The Orange Story," will attend the screening. The films are suitable for all ages.

This free program is offered in conjunction with the exhibit "Gambatte! Legacy of an Enduring Spirit Japanese American WWII Incarceration, Then and Now,” by Paul Kitagaki Jr. which is currently on view at the Historic Fort Snelling visitor center. This event is sponsored by the Twin Cities chapter of the Japanese American Citizens League.
