Our American Family: The Furutas available May 2015

The latest Our American Family documentary, The Futuras, will be available to public television stations in time for May’s Asian American Heritage Month. By all indications, this powerful installment in the Our American Family series will be our most viewed to date. Here’s a synopsis:

Through hard work, the Furutas, a Japanese American family of Wintersburg, CA established a successful goldfish farm, only to have their business devastated and family separated in the wake of WWII. Following years in an Arizona relocation camp, their indomitable spirit prevails as they return home and band together to pursue the American dream a second time.
