SEADRIFT examines the tensions in a small Gulf Coast fishing town when Vietnamese refugees move there in 1979. The local fishermen in Seadrift, Texas, resent the newcomers and openly discriminate against them. When a Vietnamese fisherman shoots and kills a white crabber, violence erupts event further against the refugees. Several fishing boats are burned and a vacant home is firebombed.
A campaign of violence ensues, and the KKK takes measures to drive the Vietnamese out of town. SEADRIFT looks at the incident and its significance to the contemporary struggle for civil rights. — Lansia Wann
