    "description": "Documentary film about Gridley, California, farmer and former\n  \n   Tule Lake\n  \n  inmate Jim Tanimoto that focuses on his wartime incarceration and on the postwar memory of that time. The film is built around interviews with Tanimoto and footage of him at his farm and at a Tule Lake Pilgrimage, along with interviews with his daughter and granddaughter. Tanimoto and his family went to Tule Lake directly in July 1942 and were placed in Block 42. He was among the many inmates in that block who resisted filling out the\n  \n   loyalty questionnaire\n  \n  and were subsequently imprisoned and held for a time at\n  \n   Camp Tulelake\n  \n  , a former CCC camp. He was eventually allowed to return to Tule Lake and then returned to Gridley in 1945, where he nonetheless faced a great deal of discrimination from locals. Tanimoto and his family also talk about the postwar silence about the incarceration,\n  \n   redress\n  \n  , and the importance of telling the story. Filmmaker Jessie Dizard used period country blues music as a soundtrack to the historical images.",
