Produced by KTEH, a San Jose public television station, <i>Return to the Valley</i> was the first episode of an anthology series titled <i>Voices of the Valley</i> and debuted in 2003. It received a region Emmy Award in 2004 for \"Outstanding Community Program.\"\n</p><p>\"Return to the Valley\" tells its story in segments titled \"Arrival,\" \"Return,\" \"Rebuilding,\" and \"Remembrance.\" It begins with narrator Ken Kashiwahara at a contemporary Japanese American youth basketball league game before providing a brief overview of Japanese migration and settlement in the valley and the trauma of World War II expulsion and incarceration. The bulk of the story focuses on the decade after Japanese Americans were allowed to <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Return_to_West_Coast\" title=\"Return to West Coast\">return to the West Coast</a> beginning in 1945 and is told mostly through the recollections of <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Nisei\" title=\"Nisei\">Nisei</a> interviewees, period still photographs, and the home movie footage of <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Dave_Tatsuno\" title=\"Dave Tatsuno\">David Tatsuno</a> (who is one of the Nisei interviewed). The narrative covers the vandalism, <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Terrorist_incidents_against_West_Coast_returnees\" title=\"Terrorist incidents against West Coast returnees\">nightrider attacks</a>, and discrimination that first greeted many of the returnees; the changing fortunes of women and Issei; non-Japanese Americans who helped Japanese Americans in the resettlement years;  the gradual shift away from farming and fishing, which had been the mainstays of the prewar economy, and the rise of small businesses and gardening; and the continuing vitality of Japanese American culture and remembrances of the wartime period.\n</p><p>A website for the film was also produced in 2007–08. A teacher's guide for the documentary is available on the website and includes essays by Wendy Ng, Stephen Fugita, Tom Izu, Larry Oda, Tim Thomas, Alexander Yamato, and <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Mike_Honda\" title=\"Mike Honda\">Mike Honda</a>.\n</p><p>The project was funded by grants from the <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/California_Civil_Liberties_Public_Education_Program\" title=\"California Civil Liberties Public Education Program\">California Civil Liberties Public Education Program</a>, the Community Foundation of Silicon Valley, and the Henri and Tomoye Takahashi Charitable Foundation.\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><a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/Forced_Out:_Internment_and_the_Enduring_Damage_to_California_Cities_and_Towns_(film)\" title=\"Forced Out: Internment and the Enduring Damage to California Cities and Towns (film)\">Forced Out: Internment and the Enduring Damage to California Cities and Towns</a></i> (2003); <i><a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/Resettlement_to_Redress:_Rebirth_of_the_Japanese-American_Community_(film)\" title=\"Resettlement to Redress: Rebirth of the Japanese-American Community (film)\">Resettlement to Redress: Rebirth of the Japanese-American Community</a></i> (2005); <i><a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/Dave_Tatsuno:_Movies_and_Memories_(film)\" title=\"Dave Tatsuno: Movies and Memories (film)\">Dave Tatsuno: Movies and Memories</a></i> (2006)\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>official website: <a class=\"external free offsite\" href=\"http://www.returntothevalley.org/\" rel=\"nofollow\">http://www.returntothevalley.org/</a>.\n</p><p><a class=\"external text offsite\" href=\"http://www.returntothevalley.org/08_guide.html.\" rel=\"nofollow\">Return to the Valley On-Line Teacher's Guide</a>.
