Seventy-six years after Executive Order 9066 paved the way for a profound violation of constitutional rights —the forced incarceration of 120,000 Japanese Americans—And Then They Came for Us brings history into the present. The award-winning 50-minute documentary, retells this challenging chapter of the U.S.’s past through the perspective of Japanese American activists speaking out against the Muslim registry and travel ban. Produced by Peabody-winning filmmakers, Abby Ginzberg and Ken Schneider, the film features newly rediscovered photographs of Dorothea Lange.
