Oakland Asian Cultural Center presents Resistance At Tule Lake, a film that overturns the myth of Japanese Americans as obedient government collaborators during their WWII incarceration. Konrad Aderer's seminal film reveals the long-marginalized story of Tule Lake Segregation Center, the overcrowded, highly-militarized concentration camp where over 12,000 Japanese Americans were demonized and punished for speaking out against the injustice of their incarceration.
"Resistance at Tule Lake" is a potent piece of history at a time when the United States is once again feeling less than hospitable. -- The New York Times.
A panel of 3 distinguished Japanese American community leaders will introduce Tule Lake’s history and its relevance to current times before the screening and entertain questions afterwards.
They are: Hiroshi Hashiwagi (age 97), Tule Lake dissident and playwright whose narration is featured in the film; Chizuko Omori (age 88), producer of the acclaimed film about the incarceration, Rabbit in the Moon, and member of Nikkei Resisters; and John Ota, activist in the campaign for the Civil Liberties Act of 1988, and retired attorney.
Please join us for an insightful and inspiring afternoon.
