Alternative Facts: The Lies of Executive Order 9066

Alternative Facts is a documentary about the false information and political influences that led to the World War II incarceration of Japanese Americans.  It sheds light on the people and politics that influenced the signing of the infamous Executive Order 9066 which authorized the mass incarceration of nearly 120,000 Japanese Americans. The film exposes the lies used to justify the decision and the cover-up that went all the way to the United States Supreme Court. The film also examines the parallels to the current climate of fear, attitudes towards immigrant communities, and similar attempts to abuse the powers of the government.
