In July 2012 members of Nikkei Australia, Keiko Tamura, Yuriko Nagata, Lorna Kaino and Mayu Kanamori (then informally called the Japan-Australia Research Group) viewed 3 dvds containing late film director Solrun Hoaas’ documentary moving image AFTER TATURA consisting of interviews with former WWII Japanese civilian internees in Australia about their internment, their post war lives and footage of their reunion in Japan. These dvds are held at the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia (NFSA). Hoaas died in December 2009. AFTER TATURA was not realised as a finished production. The group wrote a report on their findings.
