A 21-minute short, <i>Half Kenneth</i> was made by Ken Ochiai as a master's thesis film at the American Film Institute.\n</p><p>The story focuses on two young brothers, twelve year old Kenneth Handa and his younger brother Joseph (played by real life brothers Avery and Hunter Dennis). Both are of mixed race ancestry. As the film begins in 1945, their Japanese American father has died, and they are set to be moved to the <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Manzanar_Children%27s_Village\" title=\"Manzanar Children's Village\">Manzanar Children's Village</a>, an orphanage. But Ken decides he will not go and decides to sneak out of the camp to find his white mother, who stayed behind in the family house in San Pedro. As he sneaks into the back of a truck driven by Masamichi (played by Chris Tashima, he is a man who would be about his parents' age, but his relationship to the boys is never stated), he is initially disturbed to discover that Jo insists on tagging along. The boys eventually convince Masamichi to drive them to their prewar home in San Pedro where things aren't quite what they had hoped. The movie was filmed at Manzanar and in the Santa Clarita desert, where a replica barracks was built. The film begins with a brief description of <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Executive_Order_9066\" title=\"Executive Order 9066\">Executive Order 9066</a> and its impact narrated by Sab Shimono's character over scenes from newsreels and <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/OWI/WRA_documentaries\" title=\"OWI/WRA documentaries\">War Relocation Authority films</a>.\n</p><p>Director Ochiai is a native of Japan who came to the United States to go to college and to attend film school. He and his partners had hoped to make turn <i>Half Kenneth</i> into a feature length film.\n</p>\n<div id=\"authorByline\"><b>Authored by <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Brian_Niiya\" title=\"Brian Niiya\">Brian Niiya</a></b></div>\n<div id=\"citationAuthor\" style=\"display:none;\">Niiya, Brian</div>\n<p>Might also like <i>Tadaima</i> (2015); <i><a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Take_Me_Home:_A_Child%27s_Experience_of_Internment_(film)\" title=\"Take Me Home: A Child's Experience of Internment (film)\">Take Me Home: A Child's Experience of Internment</a></i> (2005); <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><i>Half Kenneth</i> website. <a class=\"external free offsite\" href=\"http://kenochiai.com/works/03_hk/intro_e.html\" rel=\"nofollow\">http://kenochiai.com/works/03_hk/intro_e.html</a>.\n</p><p>\"<a class=\"external text offsite\" href=\"http://www.filmradar.com/interviews/item/hollyshorts_filmmaker_interview_half_kenneth/\" rel=\"nofollow\">HollyShorts Filmmaker Interview: Half Kenneth</a>.\" Film Radar website, Aug. 8, 2009. \n</p><p>Winfrey, Yayoi Lena. \"<a class=\"external text offsite\" href=\"http://watermelonsushiworld.blogspot.com/2009/12/half-and-half-and-backed-by-yoko-ono.html\" rel=\"nofollow\">Half Kenneth Is All That, And Backed By Yoko Ono Lennon, Too!</a>\" Watermelon Sushi World, Dec. 16, 2009.\n</p>\n<!-- \nNewPP limit report\nCPU time usage: 0.128 seconds\nReal time usage: 0.131 seconds\nPreprocessor visited node count: 406/1000000\nPreprocessor generated node count: 2701/1000000\nPost‚Äźexpand include size: 9279/2097152 bytes\nTemplate argument size: 1550/2097152 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:2645-0!*!0!!*!5!* and timestamp 20180309150635 and revision id 28518\n -->\n</div></div><div class=\"toplink\"><a href=\"#top\"><i class=\"icon-chevron-up\"></i> Top</a></div></body></html>",
