Rabbit in the Moon | Trailer

Doc Fortnight, MoMA’s annual international festival of nonfiction film, returns with 10 days of important new discoveries in documentary cinema. Featuring recent films by emerging and established artists—many of whom will introduce their work in person—the festival offers fresh ways of considering the world around us in a time of increasing political uncertainty.

Not all Japanese Americans endured their World War II internment with quiet stoicism. Not all second generation (Nisei) young men welcomed the chance to prove their patriotism by serving in the armed forces of the very government that was holding their families captive. A more complex, turbulent and intimate story of the internment camps is revealed in Emiko Omori’s film, Rabbit in the Moon.
