Asian American Film Series: Alternative Facts: The Lies of Executive Order 9066

July 7 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Since 2010, SBTHP has presented the Asian American Film Series, a free event held on Fridays in July at the Alhecama Theatre. In an effort to explore the history and cultures of the Asian communities that once thrived in and around the Santa Barbara Presidio area, the series includes films that speak to the Asian American experience in the US. The films have addressed a broad range of historical and modern topics, such as the internment of Japanese Americans during WWII, Chinese American adoptions, and the contributions of key Asian American figures.

This event is free to attend for all SBTHP members, with a suggested $5 donation for non-members. Seating is first come, first served!

This film series is made possible by the generous support of the George H. Griffiths and Olive J. Griffiths Charitable Foundation.

Film Premise:
This is an award-winning documentary feature film about the false information and political influences which led to the World War II incarceration of Japanese Americans. Alternative Facts sheds light on the people and politics that influenced the signing of the infamous Executive Order 9066 which authorized the mass incarceration of nearly 120,000 Japanese Americans. The film exposes the lies used to justify the decision and the cover-up that went all the way to the United States Supreme Court. Alternative Facts 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.

Followed by a Q&A with Director Jon Osaki.
