AMERICAN: AN ODYSSEY TO 1947, a cinematic masterpiece by Danny Wu, deftly ties together the stories of iconic characters against the turbulent backdrops of WWII, the Great Depression, and the aftermath of the atomic bomb. Orson Welles, the renowned director, allows us to witness his spectacular rise to fame in Hollywood in the early 1940s. In parallel, we follow the path of an African American soldier who valiantly enlists and a Japanese American youngster who is abroad as the war progresses. However, as 1947 draws near, their paths split apart, highlighting the sharp differences within the American identity. The film deftly contrasts the exuberant ascent to fame as a filmmaker with the harsh realities of racial discrimination and living in the Jim Crow South. This documentary, which features stellar performances by Orson Welles, Catherine L. Benamou, and Gray Brechin, conveys the essence of a country's struggle by acknowledging its shadows and celebrating its victories.
