This documentary highlights the struggles of three Japanese American World War II resisters — Yosh Kuromiya, Frank Emi (1916-2010) and Mits Koshiyama (1924-2009) — who challenged the U.S. government’s decision to draft Japanese Americans while they and their families were being held in America’s concentration camps.

The screening, which is part of the Center for Japanese Religions and Cultures’ Japanese American Religion and Society Project, will be followed by an appearance by Kuromiya and director, co-writer and executive producer Momo Yashima.

The event is free and open to the public. RSVP to cjrc@dornsife.usc.edu. For a campus map, go to http://web-app.usc.edu/maps/.
