ANAHEIM — Anaheim Free Methodist Church will host a screening of the acclaimed documentary film “The Manzanar Fishing Club” on Sunday, Feb. 24, from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. as part of its observance of Day of Remembrance.
Writer-producer Richard Imamura will be on hand to introduce the film and answer questions.
“Day of Remembrance marks the first anniversary of our public theatrical showing of ‘The Manzanar Fishing Club,’ and I am happy to bring the movie back to Orange County this year,” Imamura said. “While ‘The Manzanar Fishing Club’ is an inspirational story of those who refused to become victims, it is also a cautionary tale of racial profiling and the subsequent loss of civil liberties on a massive scale. We Japanese Americans have a special responsibility to speak out when we see it happening to anyone else.”
The screening is open to the public and will take place in the Fellowship Hall. The church is located at 1001 N. Mayflower St.
Day of Remembrance 2013 marks the first time “The Manzanar Fishing Club” has been shown in Orange County since the West Coast Film Festival on Aug. 19, 2012 in San Juan Capistrano.
