Video Description

Rabbit in the Moon is a documentary/memoir about the lingering effects of the World War II internment of the Japanese American community. It is also the story of two sisters, both former internees, filmmaker Emiko Omori and writer Chizuko Omori, who revisited the absence of this vital history in their lives while searching for he memory of their mother. Visually stunning and emotionally compelling, Rabbit in the Moon examines issue that ultimately created deep rifts within the community, reveals the racist subtext of the loyalty questionnaire and exposes the absurdity of the military draft within the camps. These testimonies are linked by the filmmakers' own experiences in the camps and placed in a larger historical context by the voice of the director, Emiko Omori.
