It was moving to be with George Takei at the Alphawood Gallery in Chicago as he discussed his experiences in the camps at Rohwer, Arkansas and Tule Lake. George is spreading the word that we all have to resist hate and the Muslim travel ban or we are doomed to repeat one of the darkest chapters in US history.

“I’ve seen pretty much every film on the Japanese American incarceration experience in recent years, and this was definitely one of the most powerful and informative. Moreover, the film deftly related the Japanese American experience to today’s issues of civil liberties infringement, making it a must-see film for these difficult times.”
