“From a Silk Cocoon”

Emmy Award winning documentary film by Satsuki Ina, PhD

“True story of a young Japanese American couple whose shattered dreams and forsaken loyalties lead them to renounce their American citizenship while held in separate camps during WWII. They struggle to prove their innocence and fight deportation during a time of wartime hysteria and racial profiling.” (57 min.)

“From a Silk Cocoon…offers a cautionary tale of homeland security…compelling…stretches beyond the basic facts of the Japanese-American internment experience into the dark and thorny corners of ‘perceived military necessity’ that is just as frightening and relevant now as it was when it happened…An intimate portrait of a family under siege.”

– Mark Halverson, Sacramento News & Review

“Children of the Camps”

“Powerful documentary that portrays the lingering personal impact of the WWII internment experience on Japanese Americans who typically have not talked openly about the humiliation and trauma of the internment experience. It is an emotionally riveting piece that tells a disturbing story of racism in America, while highlighting the incredibly enduring strengths and cultural resources of the internees as they embark on a journey of healing.” (57 min.)

This film will serve as a valuable tool for many individuals wanting to confront and understand the trauma and stress associated with their internment experience.”

– Hon. Robert T. Matsui, Member of Congress
