PROOF OF LOYALTY, produced by Lucy Ostrander and Son Sellers, each with over 30 years of documentary filmmaking experience, tells the untold story of Kazuo Yamane and the Nisei Soldiers of Hawaii. The film uncovers the crucial and yet unusual, strategic role of the Nisei soldiers during World War II. The film also shows the soldiers own battles combatting prejudice and discrimination while loyally serving their country. Their extraordinary service, mostly untold, ultimately changed the course of U.S. history.
