Hidden Histories is a touring program of five short narrative films about Japanese American incarceration during WWII. Each film tells a personal story dramatizing a different period of this history, starting from Executive Order 9066 (which authorized the confinement sites) to the present-day legacy for younger generations. Hidden Histories commemorates an important chapter in our nation’s history, and pays tribute to the 120,000 Americans who suffered the indignity and untold losses of this unjustified incarceration. A post-screening discussion will follow.
