Bamboo to Barbed Wire
September 20th, 7:00pm
"Karen Day's 'Bamboo to Barbed Wire' is a turbulent narrative of America under stress - past and present. After the bombing of Pearl Harbor by Japan, Americans of Japanese ancestry were imprisoned as a threat to national security... The echo of the past is sharply audible still today as the film records the anguish of those impacted by the Muslim travel ban. Can this teach us the lessons of our human fallibility and make America a truer democracy?"
