Homeland Insecurity

Gary T. Ono's Calling Tokyo: Japanese American Radio Broadcasters During World War II (2002) tells the ironic story of Japanese-Americans, including his father, who were sent to internment camps and later recruited to broadcast propagandistic news and commentary to Japan. Ono's storytelling is somewhat rambling, but his video is a gripping thriller compared to John Esaki's two 2002 essays on Japanese-American life, Words, Weavings & Songs and Crossroads: Boyle Heights. Both are disorganized home-movie-like melanges of reminiscences that have only anecdotal interest—for instance, one guy's Italian neighbor was a “wonderful cook.” 115 min.
