Don't Lose Your Soul/Honor & Sacrifice (Episode #102)

KQED World: Mon, May 9, 2016 -- 2:00 AM

"Don't Lose Your Soul" by Jim Choi and Chihiro Wimbush - This documentary is an intimate portrait of Asian American musical legends bassist Mark Izu and Grammy-nominated drummer Anthony Brown, two founders of the Asian American Jazz Movement. Both have been revered throughout the Asian American community both as artists and community activities since the 1960's.
"Honor & Sacrifice" by Lucy Ostrander - "Honor & Sacrifice" tells the complex story of a Japanese immigrant family ripped apart by WWII. The Matsumoto family included five sons; two who fought for the Americans and three who fought for the Japanese. The eldest, Hiroshi (Roy), became a hero, fighting against the Japanese with Merrill's Marauders, an American guerrilla unit in Burma.

Mrs. Judo: Be Strong, Be Gentle, Be Beautiful (Episode #101)

KQED World: Mon, May 9, 2016 -- 1:00 AM

Using rare archival footage, intimate interviews and plenty of on-the-mat action, director Yuriko Gamo Romer eloquently brings to life the inspiring story of a remarkable woman and judo master. At a time when women went from childhood home to wife and homemaker, Keiko Fukuda made an unpopular choice and took a different path, saying, "This [Judo] was my marriage...this is when my life destiny was set." This documentary beautifully showcases the life of 99-year-old Sensei Fukuda, presenting her as not only a pioneer for women but as an inspiration to us all.
