Bataan realistically shows the tensions, the ugly hardships, and the ultimate heroism of a small patrol of American and Filipino fighting men in 1942. Their task is to destroy a strategic bridge in a last-ditch battle against Japan’s capture of the Philippines. No run-of-the-military war movie, Bataan is a stirring tribute to all who believe, in the words of one of the heroes, “It doesn’t matter where a man dies so long as he dies for freedom.”

Behind the Labels (Also, Garment Workers
on US Saipan)

New York: Witness, 2001
"Lured by false promises and driven by desperation, thousands of Chinese and Filipina women pay high fees to work in garment factories on the Pacific island of Saipan, the only U.S. territory exempt from labor and immigration laws. The clothing they sew, bearing the "Made in the USA" label, is shipped duty and quota-free to the U.S for sale by The GAP, J. Crew, Polo and other retailers. Powerful hidden camera footage, along with the garment workers’ personal stories, offers a rare and unforgettable glimpse into indentured labor and the workings of the global sweatshop where 14 hour shifts, payless paydays, and lock-downs are routine. Behind the labels takes the story from the factory floor to the streets, where protesters worldwide wage an ongoing battle against globalization."--Witness website.
