CineCulture presents ‘Resistance at Tule Lake’ Feb. 17

Resistance at Tule Lake

Fresno State’s CineCulture film series presents “Resistance at Tule Lake” (2016) at 5:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 17, in the Peters Education Center Auditorium.

Over 120,000 Japanese Americans were incarcerated in 10 camps from 1942 to 1945, in the largest mass imprisonment of citizens in U.S. history. “Resistance at Tule Lake tells the long-suppressed story of the “No-No’s” – 12,000 incarcerees who defied the government by refusing to swear unconditional loyalty to the U.S.

Although refusal was an act of protest and family survival, the government branded “No-No’s” as “disloyals” and forced them to relocate to the newly militarized Tule Lake Segregation Center.

The Henry Madden Library is a sponsor of this event, which is presented in conjunction with the library’s exhibition “9066: Japanese American Voices from the Inside,” opening Feb. 19.

Director Konrad Aderer will lead the post-screening discussion for this film (78 minutes).
