The Nisei Farmer by Dean Yamada

Inspired by an experience with his own father, writer and director Dean Yamada will present his award-winning dramatic short film about a farmer who is forced to choose between holding on to the bitterness of his youth, which arose out of his incarceration in an American concentration camp during World War II, and letting go of that past to restore his broken relationship with his wife. Integral to the story is the farmer's decision to either accept or decline $20,000 in reparations from the U.S. government.

After the screening, Yamada will discuss how he formulated this personal story into film.

9066 to 9/11

Produced by the National Museum's Frank H. Watase Media Arts Center, 9066 to 9/11 explores similarities between the treatment of Japanese Americans during World War II and Arab and South Asian Americans post-9/11. The film reveals disturbing parallels between these experiences -- separated by more than sixty years. While Executive Order 9066, which authorized the incarceration of Japanese Americans during the war was not reinstated post-9/11, the need to defend the Constitutional rights of all people has never been more relevant than now.

This screening will be followed by a discussion featuring award-winning Japanese American, Arab American, and Muslim American journalists, including photographer STAN HONDA; Knight Ridder Washington Bureau correspondent, KEN MORITSUGU; Detroit Free Press Staff Writer, NIRAJ WARIKOO, and LORRAINE ALI, contributing editor for Newsweek. VAL ZAVALA, Host of KCET's Life & Times will moderate.
