Memories from the Dept. of Amnesia

Part of the Global Perspectives on War and Peace Collection.

Experimental diary piece about the grandmother of the videomaker, Yuriko Yamate, a Japanese-American who was interned during World War II. Audio of family members warmly reminiscing about Yamate contrasts with a cool and factual timeline of important (mainly negative) moments in her life onscreen: “Born Dec. 15, 1919, Los Angeles, CA,” “Abandoned by mother, 1924,” “Govnt. freezes Bank Account, 1941,” etc.
