STEVEN OKAZAKI:
I didn't trip. I'd like to thank the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and the Wallace Alexander Gerbode Foundation for funding me. I'd like to thank Cheryl Yoshioka and Bacon Sakatani for working on the film. I'd like to thank my friends and family, particularly my mother and father for their support. And I'd like to dedicate this to Estelle Ishigo who devoted her life to fighting racism. Thank you.
