Interviews with Colorado River Indian Tribe officials Michael Tsosie and Dennis Patch—the latter once lived in a house fashioned from former Poston barracks—point out the benefits that having the camp on their land brought them in the form of greater development of the land, a realization that has helped Okimoto get over the trauma of incarceration.\n </p>\n <p>\n  Joe Fox and James Nubile produced and directed the film, funding it independently.
