An avid fisherman whose parents were among the 120\,00 0 Americans of Japanese descent who were rounded up in the immediate after math of Pearl Harbor\, Cory has spent the past six years chronicling the u ntold story of this overlooked chapter in U.S. history.\n\nThe project mov ed to the next level when fellow anglers and video production company prin cipals Lester Chung and John Gengl proposed interviewing the surviving int ernee fishermen for a documentary film.\n\nWriter Richard Imamura pored ov er hours and hours of interviews and expanded the project from a 22-minute short into a feature length documentary. His script brought together what Shiozaki had intuitively known all along &mdash\; that all of the fisherm en's stories touched\, in one way or another\, on a yearning to be free."\ n\nFor more information\, please visit the film's website at&nbsp\;<a href =""></a>.
