Producer/Director/Cinematographer: Emiko Omori. Co-Producer: Chizuko Omori. Editor: Pat Jackson.

Rabbit In the Moon is the story of 120,000 Japanese Americans who were imprisoned in camps during WWII.

The trampling of civil rights; a generation's loss of a lifetime's work; the fissures created in a strong, vital community; the drafting of young men from the camps; the racist loyalty questionnaire — all told through the experiences of the co-producers' family and many other former inmates.

The DVD also includes bonus features: new interviews with key figures, rare archival footage, film makers' commentary, and detailed fact files. Film: 85 minutes. Bonus footage: 130 extra minutes.
