ALTERNATIVE FACTS: The Lies of Executive Order 9066 is a documentary feature film about the false information and political influences which led to the World War II incarceration of Japanese Americans. The film also examines the parallels to the current climate of fear, targeting of immigrant and religious communities, and similar attempts to abuse the powers of the government.
Director's Statement: Jon Osaki
As a long-time community activist and descendant of two former World War II detainees, I am proud to share this largely untold aspect of the Japanese American incarceration story. Alternative Facts will explore forgotten chapters of this tragic tale that will inform, shock, and inspire audiences.
