AND THEN THEY CAME FOR US
December 10 only
Directors Abby Ginzberg and Ken Schneider, as well as Don Tamaki, member of the original Korematsu legal team and Christine Mansfield, who works with immigrants being held in detention, will be in attendance for Q&A after the screening!
Seventy-five years ago, Executive Order 9066 paved the way to the profound violation of constitutional rights that resulted in the forced incarceration of 120,000 Japanese Americans. Featuring George Takei and many others who were incarcerated, as well as newly rediscovered photographs of Dorothea Lange, And Then They Came for Us brings history into the present, retelling this difficult story and following Japanese American activists as they speak out against the Muslim registry and travel ban. Knowing our history is the first step to ensuring we do not repeat it. And Then They Came for Us is a cautionary and inspiring tale for these dark times.
Producer/Co-director: Abby Ginzberg. Co-director/Editor: Ken Schneider. Featuring George Takei and Satsuki Ina.
