The film includes the story of the mass removal of Japanese Americans from the area and their subsequent incarceration during World War II.\n </p>\n <p>\n  The film begins by briefly covering the history of the three main ethnic groups who made the area their home: Chinese Americans, Japanese Americans, and Filipino Americans through interviews with community leaders and historians and historical photographs. The film treats each group separately, noting the similarities and differences between them and the discrimination each faced. While World War II brought the exclusion of Japanese Americans—described in interviews with Shigeko Uno and Shiro Kashino—it also opened up opportunities for Chinese and Filipino Americans. The postwar era brought an end to much residential segregation, allowing many Asian Americans to leave the area to settle in other parts of the city. But these new opportunities led to the decline of the Chinatown area, which was exacerbated by the construction of a freeway and the Kingdome sports complex. But the threat of the area's demise led to a resurgence of activism among Asian American groups—now acting as one rather than separately—that led to a revival of the area.\n </p>\n <p>\n  Completed in 1986,\n  <i>\n   East of Occidental\n  </i>\n  was written and directed by Maria Gargiulo and produced by Lucy Ostrander. Funders for the film included the Seattle-Chinatown International District Preservation &amp; Development Authority, the Washington Commission for the Humanities, the Seattle Arts Commission, and the Washington State Arts Commission.\n </p>\n <div id=\"authorByline\">\n  <b>\n   Authored by\n   <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Brian_Niiya\" title=\"Brian Niiya\">\n    Brian Niiya\n   </a>\n   , Densho\n  </b>\n </div>\n <div id=\"citationAuthor\" style=\"display:none;\">\n  Niiya, Brian\n </div>\n <p>\n  Might also like\n  <i>\n   <a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/From a Different Shore: An American Identity (film)/\" title=\"From a Different Shore: An American Identity (film)\">\n    From a Different Shore: An American Identity\n   </a>\n  </i>\n  (1994);\n  <i>\n   <a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/Crossroads in Nihonmachi (film)/\" title=\"Crossroads in Nihonmachi (film)\">\n    Crossroads in Nihonmachi\n   </a>\n  </i>\n  (2006);\n  <i>\n   <a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/Crossroads: Boyle Heights (film)/\" title=\"Crossroads: Boyle Heights (film)\">\n    Crossroads: Boyle Heights\n   </a>\n  </i>\n  (2002)\n </p>\n</div>\n<!-- Saved in parser cache with key encycmw:pcache:idhash:3171-0!canonical and timestamp 20201114001757 and revision id 28697\n -->\n",
