Pilgrimage: A Film by Tad Nakamura

events/2006-11-11_pilgrimage.jpg

Pilgrimage tells the inspiring story of how a small group of Japanese Americans in the late 1960s uncovered their lost history and created the Manzanar Pilgrimage, which transformed the once-abandoned WWII American concentration camp into a vibrant symbol of retrospection and solidarity for people of all ages, races, and nationalities. Pilgrimage is a timely and engaging film that brings new and much-needed insight to the lessons of the past.

Sponsored, in part, by California Civil Liberties Public Education Program.
