The Japanese American Internment Cases
directed by Steven Okazaki
film & discussion
In 1942, the U.S. government rounded up more than 110,000 Japanese Americans on the west coast and forced them into concentration camps. Three young men defied this and served jail time. This film documents their fight to overturn their sentences 40 years later. Today with a fascist regime in power, there is an urgent need to learn from this history and to commit ourselves to act to stop what the U.S. did to the Japanese from happening again, to anyone. Never again!
