Please join us at the SF Premiere of AND THEN THEY CAME FOR US. Filmmakers and Special Guests present for Q and A following film.
Seventy-five years ago, Executive Order 9066 paved the way to the profound violation of constitutional rights that resulted in the forced incarceration of 120,000 Japanese Americans. Featuring George Takei and many others who were incarcerated, as well as newly rediscovered photographs of Dorothea Lange, And Then They Came for Us brings history into the present, retelling this difficult story and following Japanese American activists as they speak out against the Muslim registry and travel ban. Knowing our history is the first step to ensuring we do not repeat it. And Then They Came for Us is a cautionary and inspiring tale for these dark times. Please partner with us to share this critical story.
"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."
