FULL SYNOPSIS

The documentary Passing Poston profiles the devastating legacy of World War II-era Japanese-American internment by filtering that sad history through the biographical insights of four individuals. The subjects in question found their lives irreparably damaged by incarceration; all were interned in the Poston Relocation Center on the Colorado River Indian Reservation. At the heart of the film stands former internee Ruth Okimoto, who spent the majority of her childhood unjustly trapped in a cage of barbed wire. Passing Poston follows Okimoto back to the prison of her youth, as she searches for some meaning and logic behind the camp's initial construction and attempts to reconcile the horrific recollections of her early years with her need to assimilate into American society -- a need still very much alive and unresolved during her golden years. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
