Face to Face: Stories from the Aftermath of Infamy

Interactive Website
Director: Rob Mikuriya
Producer: Rob Mikuriya

Winner of the New Media Award


Face to Face, produced by Rob Mikuriya, connects the experiences of Japanese-Americans in the early 1940s with those of Arab-Americans today through a series of personal stories told through audio, photos and Flash animation. Face to Face reveals feelings of anger, fear, hatred, confusion, loyalty and trust, and explores the anxiety of Americans whose ethnicity has suddenly become a liability. Independent Television Service commissioned Face to Face through the Electric Shadows initiative, a pilot project showcasing independently produced, innovative, interactive projects on the Web.
