In celebration of the Congressional Gold Medal's tour stop in the Bay Area (June 29 to August 4, de Young Museum), JAMsj is pleased to present a film series honoring our Nisei soldiers. The series continues in July with three more films.  

This film, MIS: Human Secret Weapon, explores an untold chapter in Japanese American history and encourages the audience to think about the values of peace. It describes how the MIS contributed to America’s victory and to Japan’s recovery after World War II ended. This film is the final installment of Junichi Suzuki’s trilogy centered on Japanese American participation during the war (following Toyo’s Camera (2008) and 442 (2010). 

Cost: Each film screening is free with admission to the museum (non-members, $5; students and seniors over age 65, $3; JAMsj members and children under 12, free).
