This documentary short, directed by Alan Roth, is an examination of the photographer Masumi Hayashi, and her panoramic photographic project on the Japanese internment camps in the United States.
Ms. Hayashi was born in the Gila River relocation camp in 1945, where her parents and sister were relocated during World War II. One month after her birth, the internment camps closed.
Ms. Hayashi's photography career is known internationally. She was professor of photography at Cleveland State University, and was the teacher of Alan Roth. Her career ended abruptly when she was shot and killed in August 2006 by a young psychotic neighbor.
