Fukumoto explains that her great-grandfather was among those that played at obon on the plantation and that her family passed down the taiko song \"Fukushima Ondo\"—her family originates from Fukushima Prefecture—down through the generations.\n  <i>\n   Great Grandfather's Drum\n  </i>\n  goes on to explore plantation life and communities, the upheavals of World War II—including the internment of\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Issei\" title=\"Issei\">\n   Issei\n  </a>\n  leaders on Maui as well as the exploits of Japanese American soldiers with a focus on the\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Rescue_of_the_Lost_Battalion\" title=\"Rescue of the Lost Battalion\">\n   rescue of the \"Lost Battalion\"\n  </a>\n  —and the political changes that Japanese Americans led after the war.

They go on to visit and play in Hiroshima.\n </p>\n <p>\n  <i>\n   Great Grandfather's Drum\n  </i>\n  began with a grant from Maui County to conduct interviews with twenty elders. Additional funding came from the Japanese Cultural Society of Maui and the Alexander &amp; Baldwin Foundation. Opticus Corporation produced the film, with principals Cal Lewin directing and Victorian Lewin producing. The film aired on PBS Hawaii in April 2011 and has been screened subsequently both in Hawai'i and the continental U.S.\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 notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/The_Untold_Story:_Internment_of_Japanese_Americans_in_Hawai%27i_(film)\" title=\"The Untold Story: Internment of Japanese Americans in Hawai'i (film)\">\n    The Untold Story: Internment of Japanese Americans in Hawai'i\n   </a>\n  </i>\n  (2012);\n  <i>\n   <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Hidden_Legacy:_Japanese_Traditional_Performing_Arts_in_the_WWII_Internment_Camps_(film)\" title=\"Hidden Legacy: Japanese Traditional Performing Arts in the WWII Internment Camps (film)\">\n    Hidden Legacy: Japanese Traditional Arts in the World War II Internment Camps\n   </a>\n  </i>\n  (2014);\n  <i>\n   <a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/From Bullets to Ballots (film)/\" title=\"From Bullets to Ballots (film)\">\n    From Bullets to Ballots\n   </a>\n  </i>\n  (1997)\n </p>\n</div>\n<!-- Saved in parser cache with key encycmw:pcache:idhash:3764-0!canonical and timestamp 20201114001859 and revision id 28408\n -->\n",
