LIL TOKYO REPORTER PREMIERE
1935 Los Angeles, community leader Sei Fujii uncovers the corrupt activities of his community's underground mafia. He must choose between saving the face of his deteriorating community and confronting the issues head on through his newspaper. Based on a true story.


The Lil Tokyo Reporter is a narrative short film to bring to light and honor the major accomplishments of Sei Fujii, Issei pioneer, leader and publisher. He immigrated to America in 1903 and graduated from USC Law School in 1911. Unable to become an attorney because he was not an American citizen, he worked for decades with classmate J. Marion Wright, a civil rights attorney, to help the Issei and the Japanese American community with racially discriminatory legal issues. Their biggest legal victory was to appeal and win a United States Supreme Court decision in 1928, to allow Japanese doctors in Los Angeles to build the first Japanese hospital in the country.  (http://ltreporter.com/blog/history/)
