Kakio's Story is an 11 minute short film written and directed by Shingo Usami in 2004. This film is based on a true story of a Japanese immigrant Kakio Matsumoto who worked as a pearl diver in Broome, Western Australia, before the WWII. The internment of him and his Australian family during and after the war caused them tremendous hardship and grief. This film was inspired by his persistence and determination to reunite his family.
Kakio's Story has been incorporated into a History and English education material created by the Department of Education, Western Australia.
