Ishizuka. In <i>Conversations</i>, three characters discuss their life experiences, feelings and the facts of the World War II incarceration of Japanese Americans, exploring the changes in their lives and long term effects of their wartime experiences. Though taking the form of oral history interviews, the three characters were nonprofessional actors playing composite characters based on their own experiences and that of others. The cast included Kimiko Nakamura—the mother of director Nakamura—along with <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Warren_Furutani\" title=\"Warren Furutani\">Warren Furutani</a>, playing a role based on his father, and Grace Ino, playing the part of a younger <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Nisei\" title=\"Nisei\">Nisei</a>. in a 2009 interview, Nakamra said that the film \"was experimental in that we used the experiences of the non-actors themselves reading transcripts of interviews, and a little bit of coaching.\"<sup class=\"reference\" id=\"cite_ref-ftnt_ref1_1-0\"><a class=\"\" href=\"#cite_note-ftnt_ref1-1\">[1]</a></sup>\n</p>\n<div id=\"authorByline\"><b>Authored by <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Patricia_Wakida\" title=\"Patricia Wakida\">Patricia Wakida</a></b></div>\n<div id=\"citationAuthor\" style=\"display:none;\">Wakida, Patricia</div>\n<p>Might also like <i><a class=\"new encyc notrg\" href=\"/index.php/American_Sons\" title=\"American Sons (page does not exist)\">American Sons</a></i> (2005); <i><a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/Looking_Like_the_Enemy_(film)\" title=\"Looking Like the Enemy (film)\">Looking Like the Enemy</a></i> (1996); <i><a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/Children_of_the_Camps_(film)\" title=\"Children of the Camps (film)\">Children of the Camps</a></i> (1999)\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<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>Murray, Alice Yang. <i>Historical Memories of the Japanese American Internment and the Struggle for Redress</i>.
