CHILDREN OF JAPAN (1941, 10:10)
An extraordinary, one-of-a-kind documentary of the life of a typical Japanese middleclass family, filmed earlier the same year as the Pearl Harbor attack.

The internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II is here explained according to government policy as articulated by narrator Milton Eisenhower, younger brother of Supreme Commander of the Allied Expeditionary Force in Europe. Dwight D. Eisenhower, a slickly disingenuous and sometimes outright deceitful film production especially intending to show the co-operation and satisfaction of the internees in terms of being relocated, re-employed, re-educated and interned.

The Japanese internment issue is again explained according to the government's point of view.

The incredible and moving story, told in her own words and her unique and historic paintings and drawings, of the only Caucasian woman to be interred during the American internment of Japanese-Americans.

OUR ENEMY -- THE JAPANESE (1943, 19:51)
Former Abassador to Japan Joseph C. Grew narrates this Navy film which purports to educate its audience about the Japanese, their culture and way of life in terms of their relevance to the war, but instead of enlightening the viewer with insights into the shortcomings of said aspects, it results in a recitation of a wide range of racial stereotypes, ethnic misrepresentations and hatred.

THE ENEMY JAPAN (1943, 19:42)
The U.S. Navy's version of the above film OUR ENEMY -- THE JAPANESE.

MY JAPAN (1945, 16:03)
This is certainly one of the most agitating of anti-Axis films in general and anti-Japanese films in particular, utilizing the racial stereotypes common for the period, here used with especial intensity, and put to the purpose of selling more war bonds for the 7th War Loan.

CARTOON COLLAGE (4 Films, 1942-1945, 26 Minutes)
Includes "Tokio Jokio" and "Bugs Bunny Nips The Nips"; Popeye in "Seeing Red, White 'N' Blue" and "You're A Sap, Mr. Jap".

VISIBLE TARGET (1989, 28 Minutes)
The people of Bainbridge Island, Washington State, got together to make this extraordinary film to tell the story of the shared experience of both Japanese and non-Japanese Americans when those of Japanese ancestry were forcibly relocated from the island to spend the duration of World War II in Manzanar Internment Camp in California's Owens Valley at the foot of the Sierra Nevada. A large number of the non-Japanese Bainbridge residents were quite upset about it, and did what they could to ensure that these relocated neighbors were made to feel part of at least the hearts if not the land of their former Bainbridge neighbors, and acted as caretakes of their abandoned lands, businesses and possessions for the duration. After the war, about half of the Japanese former residents returned, and while so many still lost so much, many also found their homes and hearths cared for by tried and true friends, and found as well a welcoming community.

Shortstories with David A. Andrews showcases this fictional story starring Robert Ito of a former Japanese soldier who in 1984 flashes back to three Christmases past. The first is a 1944; Christmas Eve during World War II, when it was apparent the war was lost for Japan; . His enemy, an American aviator, is being tortured into providing information. As a member of the Japanese interrogation team, he is put in the position of prying information from this American that he knows is not to be had. The second Christmas he flashes back to finds him in 1945 as a prisoner in an Allied detention center, whose Indian guards allow him furtive moments to meet with his Chinese fiance. The third Christmas finds him in 1984, struggling to navigate through a Tokyo railway station in order to make a meeting date with an American friend between train departures. Past and present merge as he and we find out the only gift one enemy can give another on a lonely Christmas Eve. A production of the Center for Advanced Film Studies of the American Film Institute.
