The Bridge

The Bridge (2008)

Directed by Sheldon Wong Shwartz, The Bridge is a captivating short film about the race and an ideal, about loyalty and a cause. The story takes us to 1945 Italy where deep inside the enemy territory, the Japanese-American soldier disconnected from his regiment regroups with an Allied American squad. As he joins the unit, however, not everyone is as welcoming given the tensions between Japan and US that followed the attack on Pear Harbor just few years earlier. Yet despite the differences the film sets on a mission to remind all of us that we are all one, we are all the same. In the words of Ronald Regan: the "blood that has soaked into the sands of a beach is all one color".
