A Japanese American filmmaker confronts his own family legacy of World War II incarceration as he joins the fight to free Farouk Abdel-Muhti, a Palestinian-born activist detained in a post-9/11 sweep of Muslim immigrants. Inspired by his grandfather’s unauthorized photographs of life in the camps, filmmaker Konrad Aderer turns the tools of surveillance back on the government, giving audiences an unprecedented glimpse behind the veil of the Homeland Security State. The charismatic Farouk organizes resistance among his fellow detainees, but as brutal abuse from immigration and prison officials begins to take its toll on his health, the fight for his freedom becomes a fight for his life.

Discussion after the film led by Masao Suzuki and Zahra Billoo.

Masao Suzuki is an Economics Professor at Skyline University and member of Nihonmachi Outreach Committee (NOC)

Zahra Billoo is the Executive Director of CAIR- SF Bay Area
