Resistance at Tule Lake Film screening with Director Konrad Aderer
In 1942, during World War II, 120,000 Japanese Americans were forced to leave their homes, with only what they could carry, and were imprisoned in "internment" camps - eith no charges against them, and no idea how long it would last. The dominant narrative of this incarceration of Japanese-Americans has been that they behaved as a “model minority,” that they cooperated without protest and proved their patriotism by enlisting in the Army.
Resistance at Tule Lake, a new feature-length documentary directed by Japanese American filmmaker Konrad Aderer, overturns that myth by telling the long-suppressed story of Tule Lake Segregation Center. Aderer will speak after the screening.
“Resistance at Tule Lake is a potent piece of history at a time when the United States is once again feeling less than hospitable.”
