‘PROOF OF LOYALTY: KAZUO YAMANE & THE NISEI SOLDIERS OF HAWAI‘I’
MAUI ARTS & CULTURAL CENTER CASTLE THEATER, KAHULUI

“This film may be about men from decades past, but it couldn’t be more relevant.”
—Asian American International Film Festival. Kazuo Yamane, a Nisei Japanese American from Hawai‘i, played a crucial strategic role in World War II. He and his fellow Nisei from Hawai‘i combatted prejudice and discrimination to loyally serve their country. Their extraordinary service, mostly untold, ultimately changed the course of U.S. history. Drafted just before the war, he became part of what would be the War Department’s most successful social experiment, taking Nisei troops from Hawai‘i and forming the 100th Infantry Battalion, a unit made up of a group entirely related to a country we were at war with. Their success was spectacular, but Kazuo was plucked from their ranks for his exceptional knowledge of Japanese, which would lead him to the Pentagon, to a secret facility in northern Maryland, and finally, to serving under President Eisenhower in Europe. 6pm.
