Manzanar, Diverted: When Water Becomes Dust
By Ann Kaneko. A co-production of the Center for Asian American Media and Vision Maker Media. A co-presentation with the Center for Asian American Media.
At the foot of the majestic snow-capped Sierras, Manzanar, the WWII concentration camp, becomes the confluence for memories of Payahuunadü, the now-parched “land of flowing water.” Intergenerational women from Native American, Japanese American and rancher communities form an unexpected alliance to defend their land and water from Los Angeles.
