The history of Japanese American internment during World War II is retold in this compelling documentary from Abby Ginzberg and Ken Schneider. Featuring actor George Takei and others who were interned, rediscovered photos by Dorothea Lange, and the story of Fred Korematsu’s long journey for justice, the film also follows Japanese American activists today as they speak out against the current Muslim travel ban and other regressive immigration policies. The film aims to educate audiences about the constitutional damage done in the name of national security due to war hysteria and racism.
