This new documentary from director/producer Konrad Aderer tells the long-suppressed story of 12,000 Japanese Americans who dared to resist the US government's program of mass incarceration during World War II. Giving voice to experiences that have been marginalized for over 70 years, the film challenges the nationalist, one-sided ideal of wartime "loyalty". Panel with the filmmakers will follow the screening.
