About Our Documentary Film

For the Sake of the Children is a documentary film that looks at the impact of WWII Japanese-American internment on mothers and how they raised their children during their incarceration and after.

This film will examine the impact that the internees’ parenting had on their children and on the generations that followed – in particular the challenges, struggles, and circumstances that individuals from each subsequent generation have faced in shaping, integrating and reconciling their identities as Japanese-Americans.

  1. Dear Postonites,
    Do you think that the younger generation (Yonsei, Gosei) have less shame associated with the internment? If yes, what has transpired in our society to make this so??

  2. As we continue to work on this film, the site will change with behind the scenes photos, screenings schedule, educational materials. Right now, this website represents our pre-production phase.
