Program Abstract: Days of Waiting is a poignant documentary about an extraordinary woman, artist Estelle Ishigo, one of the few Caucasians to be interned with 100,000 Japanese Americans in 1942 . . . She refused to be separated from her Japanese American husband and lived with him for four years behind barbed wire in the desolate Heart Mountain camp in Wyoming . . . her sketches and watercolors form[ing] a moving portrait of the lives of the internees, the struggle to keep their health and dignity and hope alive."
