Wanting to tell the story of Japanese music—as well as dance and drama—in the camps, Wong gathering material and information for some twenty years. In 2012, the film project received a Japanese American Confinement Sites Grant—administered by the National Park Service through the East Bay Center for the Performing Arts—for $138,586. Wong worked with project manager Pauline L. Fong and filmmaker Joshua Fong to interview some thirty performers and gather still and moving images of camp performances. \n</p><p>The film tells its story mostly through interviews with those involved in traditional arts in the camps, augmented with still photographs and a few snippets of filmed performances in the camps. After a brief description of Japanese performing arts prior to the war and suppression and destruction of Japanese culture in the lead up to forced removal, the focus is on the flowering of performance and teaching in the concentration camps. Since nearly all of the interviews are with women, the film makes the case that with sudden free time—\"... the ladies were kind of saved from bending over their farms and working from dawn to midnight practically to keep the family together,\" noted one interviewee, Kayoko Wakita—the concentration of cultural practitioners in once place, and the loosening of gender roles, traditional culture flourished behind barbed wire particularly for women. Ethnomusicologist Minako Waseda served as the film's adviser and also is interviewed for the film. The story ends with scenes of contemporary performances, the legacy of what survived from the incarceration period. The credits include a list of teachers and groups in the concentration camps in categories of classical dance, obon dance, koto &amp; shamisen, shakuhachi, nagauta, biwa, shigin, drama, naniwa-bushi, gidayũ, yohkyoku, and oshimai/utai.\n</p><p>A rough cut of the film premiered at the <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Japanese_American_National_Museum\" title=\"Japanese American National Museum\">Japanese American National Museum</a> on April 5, 2014. The official premiere of the finished film took place on June 28, 2014 in San José. The film was also shown on various public television stations starting in May 2015. The project also includes a website that provides background on the film, additional still photos, and other material. The producers hope to add all of the interviews conducted to the film to the website in the future.\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 rg\" href=\"/wiki/The_Music_Man_of_Manzanar_(film)\" title=\"The Music Man of Manzanar (film)\">The Music Man of Manzanar</a></i> (2005); <i><a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/The_Art_of_Gaman:_The_Story_Behind_the_Objects_(film)\" title=\"The Art of Gaman: The Story Behind the Objects (film)\">The Art of Gaman: The Story Behind the Objects</a></i> (2010); <i><a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Great_Grandfather%27s_Drum_(film)\" title=\"Great Grandfather's Drum (film)\">Great Grandfather's Drum</a></i> (2011)\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/Music_in_camp\" title=\"Music in camp\">Music in camp</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>Official website: <a class=\"external free offsite\" href=\"http://jcalegacy.com\" rel=\"nofollow\">http://jcalegacy.com</a>\n</p><p>Ito, Heather. \"Shirley Muramoto's 'Hidden Legacy' to Explore Ares in the Wartime Camps.\" <i>Nichi Bei Weekly</i>, Apr. 4, 2014, 7.\n</p><p>Sato, Kristen. \"'Hidden Legacy': Film Showcases the Preservation of Japanese Arts in the Wartime Concentration Camps.\" <i>Nichi Bei Weekly</i>, July 10–23, 2014, 6.\n</p>\n<!-- \nNewPP limit report\nCPU time usage: 0.096 seconds\nReal time usage: 0.101 seconds\nPreprocessor visited node count: 236/1000000\nPreprocessor generated node count: 1570/1000000\nPost‐expand include size: 7690/2097152 bytes\nTemplate argument size: 3796/2097152 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:3188-0!*!0!!*!5!* and timestamp 20180309150703 and revision id 28406\n -->\n</div></div><div class=\"toplink\"><a href=\"#top\"><i class=\"icon-chevron-up\"></i> Top</a></div></body></html>",
