Nakamura and produced by Karen L. Ishizuka in conjunction with <i>From Bento to Mixed Plate: Americans of Japanese Ancestry in Multicultural Hawai'i,</i> an exhibition produced by the <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Japanese_American_National_Museum\" title=\"Japanese American National Museum\">Japanese American National Museum</a> in 1997.\n</p><p>Based on interviews with fourteen veterans from of the 442nd or <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/100th_Infantry_Battalion\" title=\"100th Infantry Battalion\">100th Infantry Battalion</a>, the bulk of the film tells the story of the Hawaii members of 442nd: their reasons for volunteering; dealing with color lines while training at Camp Shelby, Mississippi; their battlefield exploits in Europe; and the continuing discrimination they faced at war's end. The last section of the film covers the role of the veterans in the \"<a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Revolution_of_1954\" title=\"Revolution of 1954\">Revolution of 1954</a>,\" the Democratic takeover of Hawai'i electoral politics, focusing on their motivations for political involvement after their wartime sacrifices.\n</p><p><i>From Bullets to Ballots</i> was featured in the <i>From Bento to Mixed Plate</i> exhibition at its opening at the Bishop Museum in 1997 and in its subsequent travels, along with two other short films, <i>Plantation Roots</i>, on the continuing legacy of Hawai'i's plantation history, and <i>The Politics of Plate Lunch</i>, on contemporary ethnic relations in Hawai'i. Initially released on VHS cassette, <i>From Bullets to Ballots</i> was issued on DVD with the other two films in 2009.\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 notrg\" href=\"/wiki/The_Untold_Story:_Internment_of_Japanese_Americans_in_Hawai%27i_(film)\" title=\"The Untold Story: Internment of Japanese Americans in Hawai'i (film)\">The Untold Story: Internment of Japanese Americans in Hawai'i</a></i> (2012); <i><a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/442:_Live_with_Honor,_Die_with_Dignity_(film)\" title=\"442: Live with Honor, Die with Dignity (film)\">442: Live with Honor, Die with Dignity</a></i> (2010); <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)\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>Japanese American National Museum media arts: <a class=\"external free offsite\" href=\"http://www.janm.org/mediaarts/productions/bento/\" rel=\"nofollow\">http://www.janm.org/mediaarts/productions/bento/</a>.\n</p>\n<!-- \nNewPP limit report\nCPU time usage: 0.112 seconds\nReal time usage: 0.115 seconds\nPreprocessor visited node count: 359/1000000\nPreprocessor generated node count: 2563/1000000\nPost‐expand include size: 8026/2097152 bytes\nTemplate argument size: 2360/2097152 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:1736-0!*!0!*!*!5!* and timestamp 20180309150600 and revision id 28512\n -->\n</div></div><div class=\"toplink\"><a href=\"#top\"><i class=\"icon-chevron-up\"></i> Top</a></div></body></html>",
