Passing Poston (DVD)
Item No.: 40156


gift wrap?: 

Directed by Joe Fox and James Nubile.

Weaving personal stories and moving archival footage, Passing Poston tells the untold story of how Japanese American internees incarcerated in the Poston Relocation Center in Arizona, were used by the US government to help develop a Native American reservation. It is the story of four former Poston internees—wounded individuals still searching for their identity and still questioning what their place is in America.

For Ruth Okimoto, the need to confront the past brings her back to the desert of Arizona where she spent her childhood years behind barbed wire. It is a journey Ruth takes to find meaning in the inexplicable as she searches to discover the true story of how the Poston camp came into being.

Running time: 105 min.
