About the Film
Before being uprooted and forcibly removed, many Japanese American families resorted to burying belongings in their backyards thinking- one day they’d be back.
No No Girl is a generational, Japanese American story that intersects ideas of identity, family, duty and the traumas of war and relocation. Almost a century removed from WWII and the incarceration of her ancestors, one young daughter will take it upon herself to shine a light on their past and uncover the mysteries that have been haunting their family.
