AT TULE LAKE
Afilm by Konrad Aderer
Resistance at Tule Lake tells the long-suppressed story of 12,000
Japanese Americans who dared to resist the
U.S. government’s program of mass incarceration during World War II.
Branded as "disloyals" and imprisoned at Tule Lake Segregation Center,
they continued to protest in the face of militarized violence, and
thousands renounced their U.S. citizenship.
Giving voice to experiences that have been marginalized for over 70
years, this new documentary from Japanese American filmmaker Konrad
Aderer challenges the nationalist, one-sided ideal of wartime "loyalty."
"A potent piece of history at a time when the United States
is once again feeling less than hospitable."
-The New York Times
