In addition to interviews with former inmate fishermen (and women) and archival images, <i>The Manzanar Fishing Club</i> also tells its story using animation and recreated scenes with actors. The film had a limited theatrical release in April 2012 and was released on DVD on October 30, 2012. It was funded in part by grants from the <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"\" title=\"California Civil Liberties Public Education Program\">California Civil Liberties Public Education Program</a> and the <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"\" title=\"Japanese American Confinement Sites Grants\">Japanese American Confinement Sites Grant program</a>.\n</p><p>The initial inspiration for the film came from a 2004 <i>Los Angeles Times</i> article that included a photograph of a Manzanar inmate identified only as Ishikawa holding a golden trout. Cory Shiozaki, a television cameraman and avid fisherman, was intrigued by the photograph, since he knew that golden trout could only be found at elevations over 8,000 feet. How had this concentration camp denizen managed to land such a fish? Over the next several years, he began to research the story of fishing at Manzanar, eventually finding former Manzanar fishermen, including the identity of Ishikawa. A resident of Eastern Sierra, Shiozaki became a volunteer docent at the <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"\" title=\"Manzanar National Historic Site\">Manzanar National Historic Site</a> and created a program on fishing at Manzanar. Through publicity about his research, he joined forces with Lester Chung and John Gengl of Talk Story, Inc., who along with childhood friend Richard Imamura, formed the creative team for the film. The team eventually interviewed twenty-six former inmates or family members and accumulated some seventy hours of interview footage for the film\n</p><p><i>Manzanar Fishing Club</i> was widely reviewed to a mixed response. Reviewers praised the film's posing of fishing as a symbol of freedom and subversion as well as the unobtrusive style of filmmaking and its unique and narrow focus as a means to tell the larger story of incarceration.<sup class=\"reference\" id=\"cite_ref-ftnt_ref1_1-0\"><a class=\"\" href=\"#cite_note-ftnt_ref1-1\">[1]</a></sup> At the same time, many reviewers felt that film was too long and became mired in minutiae about technical aspects of fishing.<sup class=\"reference\" id=\"cite_ref-ftnt_ref2_2-0\"><a class=\"\" href=\"#cite_note-ftnt_ref2-2\">[2]</a></sup>\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>Official website: <a class=\"external free offsite\" href=\"\" rel=\"nofollow\"></a>.\n</p><p>\"<a class=\"external text offsite\" href=\"\" rel=\"nofollow\">Behind the Scenes of 'The Manzanar Fishing Club.</a>'\" Clip from KCAL 9 (Los Angeles) news broadcast featuring filmmakers Cory Shiozaki and Richard Imamura, Jan. 31, 2011.\n</p><p>Matsumoto, Nancy. \"<a class=\"external text offsite\" href=\"\" rel=\"nofollow\">Fishing as a Form of Defiance: Cory Shiozaki and 'The Manzanar Fishing Club.'</a>\" Discover Nikkei website, Apr. 4, 2013.\n</p><p>Shigekuni, Phil. \"<a class=\"external text offsite\" href=\"\" rel=\"nofollow\">Senior Moments: The Manzanar Fishing Club.</a>\" <i>Rafu Shimpo</i>, Apr. 4, 2012.\n</p><p>Thomas, Pete. \"<a class=\"external text offsite\" href=\",0,2324722.story#axzz2pkgGdo4z\" rel=\"nofollow\">At Manzanar, Fishing Was the Great Escape.</a>\" <i>Los Angeles Times</i>, Apr. 24, 2009.\n</p><p>Yamamoto, J.K. \"<a class=\"external text offsite\" href=\"\" rel=\"nofollow\">'Manzanar Fishing Club' Plays to Packed House Over Weekend.</a>\" <i>Rafu Shimpo</i>, Apr. 4, 2012.\n</p>\n<h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"Reviews\">Reviews</span></h2>\n<p>Atkinson, Michael. \"<a class=\"external text offsite\" href=\"\" rel=\"nofollow\">The Manzanar Fishing Club: Japanese-Americans Remember Their Shameful Detention.</a>\" <i>Seattle Weekly</i>, May 29, 2012.\n</p><p>———. \"<a class=\"external text offsite\" href=\"\" rel=\"nofollow\">The Manzanar Fishing Club.</a>\" <i>The Village Voice</i>, Sept. 12, 2012.\n</p><p>DeWitt, David. \"<a class=\"external text offsite\" href=\"\" rel=\"nofollow\">Rebels With Fishing Poles.</a>\" <i>New York Times</i>, Sept. 13, 2012.\n</p><p>Fine, Marshall. \"<a class=\"external text offsite\" href=\"\" rel=\"nofollow\">Movie Review: <i>The Manzanar Fishing Club</i>.</a>\" <i>Huffington Post</i>, Sept. 13, 2012.\n</p><p>Goldstein, Gary. \"<a class=\"external text offsite\" href=\"\" rel=\"nofollow\">Escaping in the Pursuit of Trout</a>.\" <i>Los Angeles Times</i>, Mar. 30, 2012. \n</p><p>Hamlin, Andrew. \"<a class=\"external text offsite\" href=\"\" rel=\"nofollow\">The Manzanar Fishing Club.</a>\" <i>Northwest Asian Weekly</i>, June 14, 2012.\n</p><p>Keogh, Tom. \"'The Manzanar Fishing Club': Internees Catch a Taste of Freedom.\" <i>The Seattle Times</i>, May 31, 2012. <a class=\"external free offsite\" href=\"\" rel=\"nofollow\"></a>.\n</p><p>La Salle, Mick. \"<a class=\"external text offsite\" href=\"\" rel=\"nofollow\">'The Manzanar Fishing Club': In an Internment Camp.</a>\" <i>San Francisco Chronicle</i>, May 4, 2012.\n</p><p>Lumenick, Lou. \"<a class=\"external text offsite\" href=\"\" rel=\"nofollow\">The Manzanar Fishing Club.</a>\" <i>New York Post</i>, Sept. 14, 2012.\n</p><p>Martinez, Michael. \"<a class=\"external text offsite\" href=\"\" rel=\"nofollow\">Manzanar Fishing Club a Story of Resilience, Defiance.</a>\" <i>Reno Gazette-Journal</i>, Dec. 21, 2012. \n</p><p>Pennybacker, Robert. \"<a class=\"external text offsite\" href=\"\" rel=\"nofollow\">Fishing for Freedom.</a>\" <i>Honolulu Weekly</i>, June 20, 2012.\n</p><p>Scheck, Frank. \"<a class=\"external text offsite\" href=\"\" rel=\"nofollow\">The Manzanar Fishing Club: Film Review.</a>\" <i>The Hollywood Reporter</i>, Sept. 14, 2012.\n</p>\n<div class=\"toplink\"><a href=\"#top\"><i class=\"icon-chevron-up\"></i> Top</a></div><h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"Footnotes\">Footnotes</span></h2>\n<div class=\"reflist\" style=\"list-style-type: decimal;\">\n<ol class=\"references\">\n<li id=\"cite_note-ftnt_ref1-1\"><span class=\"mw-cite-backlink\"><a class=\"\" href=\"#cite_ref-ftnt_ref1_1-0\">↑</a></span> <span class=\"reference-text\">See, for instance, Michael Atkinson, \"The Manzanar Fishing Club: Japanese-Americans Remember Their Shameful Detention.,\" <i>Seattle Weekly</i>, May 29, 2012, accessed on January 7, 2014 at <a class=\"external free offsite\" href=\"\" rel=\"nofollow\"></a>.;
