Interviewees—both newly conducted ones and older ones taken from Densho's Digital Repository—tell the story of the camp from the attack on Pearl Harbor and the roundup of West Coast Japanese Americans to their arrival at various concentration camps run by the\n <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/War_Relocation_Authority\" title=\"War Relocation Authority\">\n  War Relocation Authority\n </a>\n . The heart of the film focuses on what happens after the so-called \"\n <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Loyalty_questionnaire\" title=\"Loyalty questionnaire\">\n  loyalty questionnaire\n </a>\n \" and the subsequent segregation of the \"disloyal\" at Tule Lake. Former leaders at Tule Lake recall the unrest that began in a truck accident that killed an inmate in late 1943, the authoritarian rule of camp director Raymond Best, and the establishment of martial law and the notorious stockade. The film goes on to cover the establishment of the pro-Japan Hoshi Dan and the pressures that led to the mass renunciation of citizenship by almost 6,000 Nisei. Several of them recall their arrival at a desolate Japan and the efforts of the Tule Lake Defense Committee and lawyer\n <a class=\"mw-redirect encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Wayne_Collins\" title=\"Wayne Collins\">\n  Wayne Collins\n </a>\n that led to most getting their American citizenship eventually restored. Scholars Barbara Takei, Tetsuden Kashima, Roger Daniels, and Sachiko Takita-Ishii provide the historical background to the story.\n</p>\n<p>\n Aderer told Norm Masaji Ibuki that he \"became engrossed in the story of Tule Lake Segregation Center\" while he was making a prior documentary,\n <i>\n  <a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/Enemy Alien (film)\" title=\"Enemy Alien (film)\">\n   Enemy Alien\n  </a>\n </i>\n , about the arrest and incarceration of a Palestinian immigrant activist after 9/11 and the parallels with the World War II incarceration of Japanese Americans. \"I knew I wanted to do a documentary about it the second I was finished with\n <i>\n  Enemy Alien\n </i>\n .\" He attended the 2010 Tule Lake Pilgrimage, where he met may of the key historical figures he would interview for the film. \"The more we learn about what happened at Tule Lake,\" he wrote on his Life or Liberty website, \"the more it informs the vexing questions raised in the pervasive and unending war the U.S. now sustains, encompassing 'national security,' immigration, racial conflict and extremism.\"\n <sup class=\"reference\" id=\"cite_ref-ftnt_ref1_1-0\">\n  <a class=\"\" href=\"#cite_note-ftnt_ref1-1\">\n   [1]\n  </a>\n </sup>\n</p>\n<p>\n Aderer's maternal grandparents were married at the\n <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Tanforan_(detention_facility)\" title=\"Tanforan (detention facility)\">\n  Tanforan Assembly Center\n </a>\n and subsequently incarcerated at\n <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Topaz\" title=\"Topaz\">\n  Topaz\n </a>\n , where his mother was born. Raised in New York City and the San Francisco Bay Area, Aderer played a Nisei who ended up at Tule Lake in a high school production of Wakako Yamauchi's\n <i>\n  <a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/12-1-A (play)\" title=\"12-1-A (play)\">\n   12–1–A\n  </a>\n </i>\n .\n <sup class=\"reference\" id=\"cite_ref-ftnt_ref2_2-0\">\n  <a class=\"\" href=\"#cite_note-ftnt_ref2-2\">\n   [2]\n  </a>\n </sup>\n</p>\n<p>\n The project was funded by a 2014 Japanese American Confinement Sites Grant of $109,961 as well as by the Center for Asian American Media, New York State Council on the Arts and others.
