Produced for Minidoka National Historic Site, this film tells the story of a group of Americans and their incarceration by the U.S. government in the High Desert of southern Idaho, purely on the basis of race. “Minidoka: An American Concentration Camp” explores the lasting impact of incarceration on Japanese-Americans, through decades of shame and silence, before the community took a stand for redress, and examines the relevance of their story for civil rights today. Explore the exhibit about World War II imprisonment Witness to Wartime: The Painted Diary of Takuichi Fujii beforehand and hear from Friends of Minidoka Executive Director Mia Russell afterward about making the film. $7 per person.
