We were able to capture the stories of Misako Shigekawa before she passed away on October 31, 2012. I feel deep gratitude for being able to hear her words as she shared her feelings about her incarceration experience. I also was able to see how truly courageous she and other mothers were.

Manzanar Pilgrimage – April 2014
It was breathtaking to experience Taiko drumming as part of the opening ceremonies at the Manzanar Pilgrimage. Our filmmakers, Joe Fox and James Nubile, and I drove from Los Angeles and were exposed to the cold, bitter winds and couldn’t imagine how those incarcerated here could endure the cold in this remote, desolate place.
