Description
Betrayed: Surviving an American Concentration Camp tells the story of a group of Japanese American citizens and their mass incarceration by the U.S. government, purely on the basis of race. In the compelling voices of survivors of the Minidoka concentration camp in Idaho, the film explores the unconstitutional suspension of the civil rights of these Japanese Americans during WWII, and the long-lasting impact of the incarceration on their community.The film also explores the long-term effects of the incarceration over decades, and the phenomenon of intergenerational trauma as it affects the community. Over 40 camp survivors and descendants bring an unparalleled immediacy and urgency to the story. Interviewees include the late Kay Sakai Nakao, one of the first Japanese Americans to be taken, the poet Larry Matsuda, Paul Tomita, whose father went directly from camp to join the OSS, Satsuki Ina, a trauma therapist who was herself born in a concentration camp, and many others. Rich archival material brings the historic event to life.In Betrayed, the incarceration of Japanese-Americans in the Pacific Northwest tells a universal story about unjust imprisonment and the loss of civil rights. The film looks at the rise of Japanese American activism in defense of the rights of others, and the relevance of this story today, both in the targeting of groups based on their religion or ethnicity and the actions of the U.S. government at the southern border.
