Item No.: 40087


gift wrap?: 

A production of the Frank H. Watase Media Arts Center Following the devastation of the World Trade Center attack on September 11, 2001, photojournalist Stan Honda's extraordinary images of dazed, dust-enveloped victims riveted the public's attention to the covers and pages of national magazines and newspapers.

Eyewitness: Stan Honda presents the photographer's own recollections and commentary, revealing the stories behind the haunting, unforgettable images that one media commentator observed, "put a face on the human witness and survivor stories."

Mr. Honda relates the aftermath of 9/11 to the unconstitutional incarceration by the U.S. government of Japanese Americans during World War II. (His parents were incarcerated at Poston, Arizona) His photographs of camp sites and understated observations alert us to the chilling parallels between the treatment of Arab Americans in the aftermath of 9/11 and of Japanese Americans in 1941.

The documentary concludes with photographs and commentary about his harrowing recent assignments covering the war in Iraq.

Mr. Honda, a San Diego native, is currently a staff photographer for Agence France-Presse, an international wire service based in New York.

Producer/Director: John Esaki. Director of Photography: Akira Boch. Motion Graphics/Sound: Masaki Miyagawa. Music: Michael Kobayashi. Cover Photographs Courtesy of Stan Honda and Agence France-Presse.
