LIL TOKYO REPORTER is a 30-minute narrative short set in 1930's Los Angeles and was developed Summer 2009 and completed in Fall 2012. The project was supported by donations from the Asian American community, grants, and volunteered talent. The film was inspired by the True Story of Civil Rights Leader Sei Fujii, a man who protected the livelihood of the Japanese American people from 1903-1954. Thus far the film team received JACL's Pacific Citizen Award for Extraordinary APAs in the Entertainment Field and $38,000 in grants (California Civil Liberties Public Education Program, UCLA's Aratani & Terasaki Foundations, and Union Bank). The film is also a production of Visual Communications and the Little Tokyo Historical Society. The film has won over 16 awards in film festivals across the United States.
