MANZANAR, DIVERTED: WHEN WATER BECOMES DUST

Directed by Ann Kaneko

Celebrated filmmaker Ann Kaneko is back at CAAMFest with her stunning and eye-opening documentary, MANZANAR, DIVERTED: WHEN WATER BECOMES DUST. Many have heard of Manzanar, California as a space where Japanese Americans were incarcerated during World War II. As we visit the city today, Manzanar continues to be home to indigenous communities who have serious concerns about the water on their land. 

In this poetic documentary, we meet an intergenerational community of women as they fight for their land and their rights. They know that when they can align their diverse groups together, including Native Americans, Japanese Americans and environmentalists, their voice is amplified. Join us as we showcase and celebrate this powerful documentary as our Centerpiece Presentation.

THIS IS A LIVE VIRTUAL SCREENING AND INCLUDES Q&A. 

Film crew includes Ann Kaneko (Director/Producer), Jin Yoo-Kim (Producer and Impact Producer), Tracy Rector (Executive Producer), Dawn  Valadez (Consulting Producer), Rebekka Schlichting (Impact Producer)
