Still image from After Silence

On March 30, 1942, the American government began its policy of internment of Japanese-American citizens. This documentary examines the effects of this policy through the reflections of Dr. Frank Kitamoto, a young child at the time. Dr. Kitamoto and high school students narrate and comment on the event, focusing on civil rights infringement, prejudice, emotions, healing, and today's concerns about constitutionally protected rights. Includes archival footage and photos
