Ono that tells the story of a small group of Japanese Americans recruited out of the concentration camps to work for the British Political Warfare Mission (BPWM) and <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Office_of_War_Information\" title=\"Office of War Information\">Office of War Information</a> (OWI) as translators and broadcasters of propaganda aimed at Japan. The small group—eight who worked for the OWI and four for the BPWM—were mostly Kibei and worked out of a Denver studio. Both groups translated American news reports that were made into radio scripts and broadcasts transmitted by shortwave radio. The operation later moved to San Francisco in February 1945, when Japanese Americans were allowed to return to the West Coast.\n</p><p>Filmmaker Ono's father, Sam Masami Ono, was one of the broadcasters, recruited out of <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Amache_(Granada)\" title=\"Amache (Granada)\">Amache</a> in 1943. Funding from a grant from the <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/California_Civil_Liberties_Public_Education_Program\" title=\"California Civil Liberties Public Education Program\">California Civil Liberties Public Education Program</a> allowed Ono to interview surviving broadcasters, who are featured in the film. Originally released in a 48 minute version, the film was reissued on DVD in 2013 in a 26 minute version.\n</p>\n<div id=\"authorByline\"><b>Authored by <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Brian_Niiya\" title=\"Brian Niiya\">Brian Niiya</a>, Densho</b></div>\n<div id=\"citationAuthor\" style=\"display:none;\">Niiya, Brian</div>\n<p>Might also like <i><a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/Camp_Amache:_The_Story_of_an_American_Tragedy_(film)\" title=\"Camp Amache: The Story of an American Tragedy (film)\">Camp Amache: The Story of an American Tragedy</a></i> (2006); <i><a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/MIS:_Human_Secret_Weapon_(film)\" title=\"MIS: Human Secret Weapon (film)\">MIS: Human Secret Weapon</a></i> (2012); <i><a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/Legacy_of_the_Nisei_Veterans:_WWII_Stories_of_the_100th/442nd_and_Military_Intelligence_Service_(film)\" title=\"Legacy of the Nisei Veterans: WWII Stories of the 100th/442nd and Military Intelligence Service (film)\">Legacy of the Nisei Veterans: WWII Stories of the 100th/442nd and Military Intelligence Service</a></i> (2011)\n</p>\n<div id=\"RelatedArticlesDisplay\">\n<div class=\"section\" id=\"Related_Articles\"><h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"Related_Articles\">Related Articles</span></h2><div class=\"section_content\">\n<p>\n</p>\n<div id=\"RelatedArticlesSectionDisplay\">\n<div class=\"section\" id=\"\"><h3><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"\"></span></h3><div class=\"section_content\">\n<p>\n</p>\n<ul><li> <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Dramatic_films/videos_on_incarceration\" title=\"Dramatic films/videos on incarceration\">Dramatic films/videos on incarceration</a></li></ul>\n</div></div></div>\n</div></div></div>\n<br/>\n<div class=\"section\" id=\"For_More_Information\"><h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"For_More_Information\">For More Information</span></h2><div class=\"section_content\">\n<p>Arneson, Rosemary.
