The 52-minute film was made by Karen L. Ishizuka and Robert A. Nakamura in conjunction with the exhibition <i><a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"\" title=\"Fighting for Tomorrow: Japanese Americans in America's Wars (exhibition)\">Fighting for Tomorrow: Japanese Americans in America's Wars</a></i> at the <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"\" title=\"Japanese American National Museum\">Japanese American National Museum</a> and screened in the exhibition gallery.\n</p><p><i>Looking Like the Enemy</i> is built on interviews with Japanese American veterans of the three wars. (Also interviewed is a Korean American, Young Oak Kim, who served with Japanese Americans in the <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"\" title=\"100th Infantry Battalion\">100th Infantry Battalion</a> and <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"\" title=\"442nd Regimental Combat Team\">442nd Regimental Combat Team</a> and also served in the Korean War.) The first half of the film focuses on issues unique to Asian American soldiers: racism from fellow soldiers and superior officers; the danger of being shot by other Americans who assume they are enemy soldiers; their own identification with civilians who remind them of their own family members in Korea and Vietnam. The second half includes more general reflections on the ironies of war—including stories about the use of pidgin English as a sort of code by soldiers from Hawai'i; the special esprit de corps only combat veterans share; and Takejiro Higa's story of interrogating former classmates who had been captured as POWs in the Battle of Okinawa—and urge for many veterans to keep silent about their wartime experiences. <i>Looking Like the Enemy</i> ends with an account by Vietnam War veteran Vincent Okamoto of visiting the Vietnam War Memorial in Washington, D.C., with his young son and the unanswerable questions his son asked him.\n</p><p>Directed by Nakamura and produced and written by Ishizuka, <i>Looking Like the Enemy</i> played in the gallery through the year-long run of <i>Fighting for Tomorrow</i> and was subsequently made available on VHS videotape and later on DVD.\n</p>\n<div id=\"authorByline\"><b>Authored by <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"\" title=\"Brian Niiya\">Brian Niiya</a>, Densho</b></div>\n<div id=\"citationAuthor\" style=\"display:none;\">Niiya, Brian</div>\n<h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"For_More_Information\">For More Information</span></h2>\n<p>Fujitani, Takashi. \"National Narratives and Minority Politics: The Japanese American National Museum's War Stories.\" <i>Museum Anthropology</i> 21.1 (1997): 99-112.\n</p><p>Nishime, LeiLani. \"Communities on Display: Museums and the Creation of the (Asian) American Citizen.\" <i>Amerasia Journal</i> 30.3 (2004–05): 40–60.\n</p><p>Xing, Jun. <i>Asian America Through the Lens: History, Representation, and Identities</i>.
