 The first offering is a 1997documentary, narrated by Pat Morita, which outlines the battlefield accomplishments of the 100th/442nd/MIS. Their stories are full of unnerving bravery and unbelievable loyalty. The film also probes emotional questions from both the grown-up children and wives of these soldiers. In the end, the movie is less about war than it is about the strength of the human spirit. The film will be followed by Q&A with filmmakers Steve Rosen and Terri de Bono.

Director/producer Terri DeBono has worked closely
with her partner, Steve Rosen, cinematographer, director and editor, for 20 years. Together they have produced commercials, corporate videos, and social-issue documentaries which have premiered nationally on PBS. Their PBS-aired documentaries include Beyond Barbed Wire, narrated by Pat Morita; Accidental Hero: Room 408, winner of numerous best documentary awards; and The Roots of California Photography, narrated by Jack Lemmon, featuring photographers Ansel Adams and Edward Weston.
