Most Honorable Son: 17 Sept 2007
I just heard from its producer, Bill Kubota that Most Honorable Son will run on PBS on 17 September at 10 pm (just a few days before the Ken Burns' special series on World War II). Mr. Kubota was kind enough to add that part of my interview will be included... so stay tuned. It is the interesting story of Nebraska Nisei Ben Kuroki. It is an honor to be interviewed in the same film with Gary Okihiro and other Nikkei historians.
A few years ago I had some e-mail and phone discussion with another documentary producer about exploring the possibility of a film on the history of libraries, but this has been my first time to be a historical advisor. It really has been an interesting experience to learn how documentaries come to reality.
