Resistance at Tule Lake
DOCUMENTARY FOCUS
EAST COAST PREMIERE
Introduction and Q&A with director Konrad Aderer
A dominant narrative of the World War II incarceration of Japanese Americans is that they behaved as a “model minority,” cooperating without protest and proving their patriotism by enlisting in the army. Konrad Aderer’s (Enemy Alien) documentary overturns this history, telling the story of the 12,000 Japanese Americans labeled “disloyal” who dared to resist the U.S. government’s program of mass incarceration at Tule Lake Segregation Center. Through the voices of contemporary descendents on pilgrimages to the concentration camp memorial site, rare stock footage and photographs, lawyers and historians, and invaluable oral history from those who lived through it, Resistance at Tule Lake brings to surface stories of dissent and noncooperation marginalized for 70 years—ever more vital today amidst new threats to the rights of immigrants and minorities.
“Aderer’s emotional, wrenching interviews with the ‘internees’... make clear the consequences of race, wartime hysteria and political expediency.” —Tomio Geron, CAAMFest
