Finding Home, a one-hour documentary, is the latest effort by Southern California-based media artist and LMU Professor, Art Nomura. Supported by a 2003-04 Fulbright Research Grant, Nomura spent the fall/winter of 2003 in Japan capturing visuals and conducting interviews for this project.

Finding Home is about Japanese Americans who have decided to live in Japan rather than America. The video examines what they have gained and lost with this decision. The six Japanese Americans featured were selected from an initial interview pool of fifty individuals. Responses to questions about lifestyle, identity, personal evolution, and choice of residence, provide insight into the expatriate experience of those who have chosen to live in their ancestral homeland. Additionally, Nomura, a sansei (third generation Japanese American), and a first-time visitor to Japan at age 57, shares his impressions of Japan throughout the documentary.

Finding Home will screen at 7:00 and 8:30 pm, April 23, 2005 at the Mayer Theater in the Van der Ahe Communication Arts building of Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. Directions to LMU and a campus map are available here. Although admission is free, seating is limited and reservations are strongly recommended. A free reception will be held between screenings from 8 - 8:30 pm.
