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
