Part of the Syracuse Symposium

Part of the Syracuse Symposium series.

Satsuki Ina (San Francisco, CA)

A two-day interdisciplinary symposium exploring the theme of authoritarianism over the past century begins with a film screening of And Then They Came For Us (2017, Abby Ginzberg, Ken Schneider). CART and film captioning provided.

Ginzberg and Schneider's film explores the stories and enduring legacy of the Japanese American internment during World War II. Featuring Japanese Americans who were incarcerated, rediscovered photos of Dorothea Lange and the story of Fred Korematsu’s long journey to justice, the film brings history into the present as it follows Japanese Americans speaking out against the Muslim travel ban and other regressive immigration policies.

The film will be followed by a conversation with Ina, who was born in the Tule Lake Segregation Center in California. A community activist, writer, and filmmaker, she has produced two of her own award-winning documentary films about the WWII Japanese American incarceration.
