Omoiyari: A Song Film by Kishi Bashi

1h 35m Documentary 2022

When a media interview links the muslim ban and the immigration crisis at the USA-Mexico border with the incarceration of Japanese-Americans during WWII, Kishi Bashi goes on a journey to learn about this history and its relevance. Along the way, he improvises and writes music in an effort to better understand his own identity as a bi-cultural American. Using never before seen archival footage from the camps, mixed with breathtaking visual storytelling, Kishi Bashi weaves a story using history, music and current events to create a portrait of America from the perspective of someone caught between two worlds.
