Time of Fear details the lives of 16,000 Japanese-Americans forced from their homes to live in relocation camps in southeast Arkansas. During World War II, Japanese Americans were considered security risks, with many refusing to denounce the Japanese emperor. Their homes and assets were seized and more than 100,000 men, women and children were moved to internment camps around the county. Jerome, Arkansas, was a poor community with few jobs and few opportunities. The residents, local officials, even the governor of the state, were concerned how such large internment camps would impact the still segregated rural area and the fear that some of the Japanese Americans would stay after the war. Former internees tell director Sue Williams about how the forced moves affected their families. There was a lack of privacy in their hastily built homes, and the men were no longer the final authority for their families. Many of the young men joined 10,000 other Japanese Americans in the 442nd Regiment, which won more battle decorations than any other U.S. military unit during World War II. They were cultured and educated, often in stark contrast to the residents of Jerome, and were viewed with suspicion and fear. Residents of the community are interviewed and the film includes rare home movies of life inside the camp.
