A documentary, “Heart Mountain: An All American Town”, will re-debut tonight on Wyoming PBS. The film tells the story of the WWII Japanese internment camp at Heart Mountain between Cody and Powell.

Just in case you missed its debut back in December, co-producer Raechel Donahue tells us why she wanted to tell the story with her film.

Donahue and co-producer Garrett Lindemann interviewed the internees who were some of more than 14,000 Asian Americans detained following the events of Pearl Harbor. Donahue's company, Stagecoach Production, makes entirely Wyoming staffed and created films.

The documentary shows tonight at 8:30 on Wyoming PBS, check your local cable provider for details.
