A two-day interdisciplinary symposium exploring the theme of authoritarianism over the past century begins with a film screening of And Then They Came For Us (2017, Abby Ginzberg, Ken Schneider).
Then They Came For Us
explores the stories and enduring legacy of the Japanese American
internment during World War II. Featuring Japanese Americans who were
incarcerated, rediscovered photos of Dorothea Lange and the story of Fred
Korematsu’s long journey to justice, the film brings history into the present
as it follows Japanese Americans speaking out against the Muslim travel ban and
other regressive immigration policies. The film will be followed by a
conversation with Filmmaker Dr. Satsuki Ina, who was born in the Tule Lake
Segregation Center in California.
