“Resistance at Tule Lake”: Screenings 3/10/19 and 3/28/19

On February 19 communities across the country honor the 77th anniversary of the wartime incarceration of Japanese Americans. Here's a note from Konrad Aderer, who created Resistance at Tule Lake, a documentary covering little-known aspects of the incarceration. We’re also including information on two screenings of the film next month and on ways people can use it for education and organizing.—TPOI editor

Since our official release for home and educational purchase in October, we have sought to keep pushing the boundaries of who knows about and engages with the history of Japanese American resistance. So far, more than a dozen universities and libraries have purchased Resistance at Tule Lake, including three University of California campuses! We are continuing our educational outreach so that this film is available in many more of the approximately 600 Asian and Asian American Studies departments in the U.S.

This will require continued work and creativity through 2019 and beyond. We can still use your help in bringing Resistance at Tule Lake to a wider audience. Please take a few moments to write a review on Amazon and Netflix, or iTunes.—Konrad Aderer
