THE PERSONAL IS POLITICAL
HISTORY AND MEMORY: FOR AKIKO AND TAKASHIGE


Country: United States
Year: 1991
Duration: 32'
Direction: Rea Tajiri

Avant-garde and captivating, this film is a poetic reflection on recorded history and spoken memory, on the writing of history and counterpart: family stories. Rea Tajiri’s family were among the 120,000 Japanese and Japanese-Americans incarcerated after the Pearl Harbor attack –a fragment of (intra)history obliterated in official audiovisual records.
