The Nisei Farmer by Dean Yamada

Inspired by an experience with his own father, writer and director Dean Yamada will present his award-winning dramatic short film about a farmer who is forced to choose between holding on to the bitterness of his youth, which arose out of his incarceration in an American concentration camp during World War II, and letting go of that past to restore his broken relationship with his wife. Integral to the story is the farmer's decision to either accept or decline $20,000 in reparations from the U.S. government.

After the screening, Yamada will discuss how he formulated this personal story into film.
