Children of the Camps

A group of Japanese-Americans in their 50s and 60s take part in a therapy session to purge traumatic memories of internment during World War II. Stephen Holsapple?s 55-minute video gets off to a promising start, but the litany of accusations against white America becomes monotonous after a while. The therapist (and the film's producer), Dr. Satsuki Ina, was born in one of the camps and seems eager to exorcise the old demons with other prosperous-looking Californians; a soft-spoken master of psychobabble, she exhorts her clients to get in touch with their inner child while a godly voice-over points out the benefits of her clinical workshop. The whole thing comes uneasily close to being an infomercial—or one of those healing moments on Oprah.
