The film was produced by the <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/National_Japanese_American_Historical_Society\" title=\"National Japanese American Historical Society\">National Japanese American Historical Society</a> (NJAHS) and KPIX, San Francisco, where Wendy Hanamura was a news reporter. After debuting on KPIX on March 5, 1995, it went on to be shown on over 100 PBS stations.\n</p><p>The project originated with the elder Hanamura's writing of his memoir, which he shared with his daughter, who was also inspired to tell his story for the sake of her then toddler son. Though initially reluctant to be a part of the project, Howe agreed after she attended an L Company reunion on Las Vegas, where his old friends willingly shared their experiences with Wendy. After getting the support of KPIX and NJAHS, she also spearheaded fundraising efforts for the approximately $350,000 project.\n</p><p>The film tells the story of Howe Hanamura, starting with his childhood in Alameda, California, where he grew up in a family of four. After graduating from UC Berkeley in 1941, he was working in a warehouse when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor and was subsequently drafted, eventually becoming a part of the 442nd upon its formation in 1943. Meanwhile, he family was forcibly removed from their home and eventually incarcerated at the <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Topaz\" title=\"Topaz\">Topaz</a>, Utah concentration camp. Interviews with fellow L Company members reveal the initial conflicts between <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Buddhahead\" title=\"Buddhahead\">Buddhaheads</a> from Hawai'i and mainland <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Kotonk\" title=\"Kotonk\">Kotonks</a> in basic training. The film then follows the unit's progress through Europe, juxtaposing interviews and historic footage with the Hanamuras' efforts to search out the sights of key battles in the present. Through the focus on one individual's story, Wendy Hanamura hoped to tell the larger story; as she told 442nd veterans at their 53rnd anniversary, \"although it is the story of my father, I really hoped that in his personal remembrances, there would be something very universal, something that spoke to each one of you and each time of your experiences.\"<sup class=\"reference\" id=\"cite_ref-ftnt_ref1_1-0\"><a class=\"\" href=\"#cite_note-ftnt_ref1-1\">[1]</a></sup>\n</p><p>Historian and film scholar Jun Xing cites <i>Honor Bound</i> as an important example of the \"Personal Diary/Family Portrait\" subgenre of Asian American documentaries, calling it \"touching and emotional.\"<sup class=\"reference\" id=\"cite_ref-2\"><a class=\"\" href=\"#cite_note-2\">[2]</a></sup>\n</p><p><i>Honor Bound</i> was premiered at a San Francisco screening on February 23, 1995, prior to its television debut.
