Manzanar: “From Barbed Wire to Barbed Hooks”…fishing stories from Manzanar

Most folks don’t know what Manzanar was, but Cory Shiozaki definitely does. Shiozaki is compiling information for a project documenting the history of Japanese-American internees who snuck out of the Manzanar internment camp under the noses of armed military guards to go trout fishing. Shiozaki’s documentary, “From Barbed Wire to Barbed Hooks,” will tell the stories of how internees risked life and limb to experince a feeling of feedom, albeit brief, fishing Sierra rivers and lakes.
