Looking Like the Enemy (VHS)
Directed by Robert A. Nakamura. Written and produced by Karen L. Ishizuka.
A video essay on the paradoxes of race and the ironies of war, Looking Like the Enemy is a bold and daring exploration into the often horrifying predicaments faced by Asian American soldiers who fought in WWII, and the
Korean and Vietnam Wars. Breaking a legacy of silence, 18 veterans share tears, laughter and
gut-wrenching experiences that help fill in the gaps that official history has often left out. 52 min.
Color. VHS. For home use only.
