“Gila River and Mama: The Ruth Mix Story” documents the experience of 15 year old Ruth Mix who, with her mother Frida Mix, volunteered as a Caucasian Nurse’s Aid at Butte Camp Hospital at Gila River Japanese Internment Camp in Arizona. History is brought to life through interviews and reenactments, and the emotional tale of Ruth’s time at the camp is an important perspective on these events as witnessed by a young caucasian woman.
