And Then They Came For Us: Film Screening and Q&A with Dr. Satsuki Ina

When: Thursday, April 11, 2019 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Where: 207 Hall of Languages


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).

And 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.
