6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Ellen Driscoll Playhouse
Piedmont   CA

9/27 at 6:30 pm in Piedmont and 10/1 at 3 pm in Oakland

This powerful documentary, which depicts the l942 interment of over 100,000 men, women and children of Japanese ancestry living on the West Coast, serves as a cautionary example in the face of today’s immigration ban against people from Muslim countries and the specter of a Muslim registry in the U.S.

Bay Area filmmakers Abby Ginzberg and Ken Schneider demonstrate that the incarceration of Japanese American was one of the worst violations of constitutional rights in American history. The film features interviews with George Takei and others who were incarcerated and stunning photos by Dorothea Lange and Ansel Adams. A panel discussion featuring Dianne Fukami and Don Tamaki will follow.

Free; no need to RSVP.

Presented by Appreciating Diversity Film Series.
