The film is built around color footage of the camp taken by Aksel Nielson, the director of recreation at Manzanar. Narrated by Shindo, the film includes his own experiences at Manzanar, military service, and subsequent musical career. Though he had passed away prior to the making of the film, Nielson's voice can be heard describing scenes of sporting events and gardens at Manzanar, and his wife, Melva Nielson, a music teacher at Manzanar, is interviewed at length on camera. Among those appearing in the film are <a href=\"/wiki/Military_Intelligence_Service\" title=\"Military Intelligence Service\">Military Intelligence Service</a> veteran Yukio Tamura, artist <a href=\"/wiki/Estelle_Ishigo\" title=\"Estelle Ishigo\">Estelle Ishigo</a>, photographer <a href=\"/wiki/Toyo_Miyatake\" title=\"Toyo Miyatake\">Toyo Miyatake</a>, nursery owner Shinobu Mashiko, Tamotsu Tsuchida, and actor <a href=\"/wiki/Mako\" title=\"Mako\">Mako</a>. With the exception of the Nielsons, Shindo summarizes their comments over the footage of them, so that none of their voices actually are heard in the film. Also included are contemporary scenes of the Manzanar site at that time and of young people revisiting Manzanar, possibly at a <a href=\"/wiki/Camp_pilgrimages\" title=\"Camp pilgrimages\">pilgrimage</a>.\n</p><p>The film is notable for being one of the earliest documentaries on the Japanese American exclusion and incarceration experience and for the unique and still rarely seen color footage. In addition to the many scenes of both organized and informal recreational activities at Manzanar (including a performance by the Jive Bombers big band), there is also footage of Manzanar Director <a href=\"/wiki/Ralph_Merritt\" title=\"Ralph Merritt\">Ralph Merritt</a> and of the <a href=\"/wiki/Cow_Creek_(detention_facility)\" title=\"Cow Creek (detention facility)\">Cow Creek</a> camp, where inmates threatened by camp violence were removed for their own safety in December 1942.\n</p>\n<div id=\"authorByline\"><b>Authored by <a href=\"/wiki/Brian_Niiya\" title=\"Brian Niiya\">Brian Niiya</a>, Densho</b></div>\n<div id=\"citationAuthor\" style=\"display:none;\">Niiya, Brian</div>\n<div id=\"RelatedArticlesDisplay\">\n<h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"Related_Articles\">Related Articles</span></h2>\n<p>\n</p>\n<div id=\"RelatedArticlesSectionDisplay\">\n<h3><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"\"></span></h3>\n<p>\n</p>\n<ul><li> <a href=\"/wiki/Dramatic_films/videos_on_incarceration\" title=\"Dramatic films/videos on incarceration\">Dramatic films/videos on incarceration</a></li></ul>\n</div>\n</div>\n<br/>\n<!-- \nNewPP limit report\nCPU time usage: 0.100 seconds\nReal time usage: 0.102 seconds\nPreprocessor visited node count: 380/1000000\nPreprocessor generated node count: 2673/1000000\nPost‐expand include size: 8281/2097152 bytes\nTemplate argument size: 1416/2097152 bytes\nHighest expansion depth: 4/40\nExpensive parser function count: 0/100\nExtLoops count: 0/100\n-->\n<!-- Saved in parser cache with key mediawiki:pcache:idhash:1692-0!*!0!!*!*!* and timestamp 20170713021116 and revision id 25709\n -->\n<div class=\"toplink\"><a href=\"#top\"><i class=\"icon-chevron-up\"></i> Top</a></div></body></html>",
