American Yokozuna

American expatriots pursuing the most ancient of japanese arts and sport reflect on the challenges of breaking into the closed worlds of Kabuki and non-theatre, traditional music -- and sumo wrestling. Featured in this program, produced by Mary Beth Kirchner, is the Hawaiian born Akebono, the only American ever to achieve the status of Sumo Grand Champion.
