The Asian American International Film Festival continues with the World Premiere of Kazuo Yamane and the Nisei Soldiers of Hawaii, a documentary directed by Lucy Ostrander and Don Sellers.
The film tells the story of Kazuo Yamane, a Japanese American who played a crucial strategic role in World War II. He and his fellow Nisei from Hawaii combatted prejudice and discrimination to serve their country loyally. Their extraordinary service, mostly untold, ultimately changed the course of U.S. history.
