Tadashi Nakamura (the same guy behind “A Song for Ourselves“) did a documentary in 2004 entitled “Yellow Brotherhood”. This piece won Best Documentary Short at the San Diego Asian Film Festival.

Here’s the synopsis of the film:

Three young Asian American men recall meeting in the Yellow Brotherhood community basketball team at age six and later discovering the incredible 30-year history of the Yellow Brotherhood, which formed as an Asian American self-help group. With remarkable stills and footage from the ’60s and ’70s, this personal documentary is an inspiring portrait of the closely-knit Asian American community of Los Angeles.

We interviewed Tadashi Nakamura at the 2009 San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival. Hope to have the interview up soon.
