As with other Japanese Americans on the West Coast, farming families were forcibly removed from their homes during World War II, with farmers in many cases having to leave their farms with crops in the fields unharvested. While some were able to leave their homes and properties in the care of sympathetic non-Japanese American friends, most were not able to. Many with agricultural background took seeds with them to the concentration camps where they planted <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Gardens_in_camp\" title=\"Gardens in camp\">gardens</a> in all of the camps. Others were recruited to do agricultural labor outside of the camps. <i>Forsaken Fields</i> goes on to cover the difficult <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Return_to_West_Coast\" title=\"Return to West Coast\">return home</a> after the war and the <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Terrorist_incidents_against_West_Coast_returnees\" title=\"Terrorist incidents against West Coast returnees\">terroristic receptions</a> many faced. The film argues that the incarceration hastened the demise of Japanese American agriculture, while also noting the impact of new technology and the greater opportunities for <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Nisei\" title=\"Nisei\">Nisei</a> and <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Sansei\" title=\"Sansei\">Sansei</a> in other fields. The experience of the Sato family of Sacramento is highlighted, with Nisei family members <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Dandelion_Through_the_Crack/Kiyo%27s_Story_(book)\" title=\"Dandelion Through the Crack/Kiyo's Story (book)\">Kiyo Sato</a> and David Sato interviewed. In addition to contemporary interviews and historical photographs, the film features home movie footage of the Sakauye and Sato families.\n</p><p><i>Forsaken Fields</i> was produced by KVIE Sacramento and was televised locally and in some national markets. The Henry and Tomoye Takahashi Charitable Foundation and Union Bank of California were its chief underwriters.\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>Changing Season: On the Masumoto Family Farm</i> (2015); <i>Our American Family: The Furutas</i> (2015); <i>Starting Over: Japanese Americans After the War</i> (1996)\n</p>\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>Center for Asian American Media website: <a class=\"external free offsite\" href=\"http://caamedia.org/films/forsaken-fields/\" rel=\"nofollow\">http://caamedia.org/films/forsaken-fields/</a>.\n</p>\n<!-- \nNewPP limit report\nCPU time usage: 0.112 seconds\nReal time usage: 0.118 seconds\nPreprocessor visited node count: 366/1000000\nPreprocessor generated node count: 2559/1000000\nPost‐expand include size: 8329/2097152 bytes\nTemplate argument size: 2142/2097152 bytes\nHighest expansion depth: 3/40\nExpensive parser function count: 0/100\nExtLoops count: 0/100\n-->\n<!-- Saved in parser cache with key mediawiki:pcache:idhash:1720-0!*!0!*!*!5!* and timestamp 20180309150545 and revision id 28411\n -->\n</div></div><div class=\"toplink\"><a href=\"#top\"><i class=\"icon-chevron-up\"></i> Top</a></div></body></html>",
