DisOrient 2019 Justice for Vincent / Alternative Facts: The Lies of Executive Order 9066
Justice for Vincent (2018) Short Narrative -  18 min. -  English  USA
Director Andy Palmer, Executive Producer Lawrence Chau

Based on a true story, the short film Justice For Vincent (JFV) re-tells the brutal beating of Chinese American Vincent Chin by two disgruntled auto workers, who mistook him for being Japanese during the so-called 'Japanese Auto Invasion' in Detroit 1982. The tragedy of Chin's murder (in which he was bludgeoned to death with a baseball bat) and the travesty of the justice system (which let the murderers off with a mere $3000 fine and 3-year probation) cut deep into the traditionally quiet Chinese community and, in an unprecedented move, sparked the first Pan-Asian civil rights movement in America.

Alternative Facts: The Lies of Executive Order 9066 (2018)Feature Documentary -  65 min - English,   USA
Directed by Jon Osaki, Produced by Lauren Kawana

Alternative Facts:  The Lies of Executive Order 9066 is a documentary feature film about the false information and political influences which led to the World War II incarceration of Japanese Americans.    Alternative Facts 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 will expose the lies used to justify the decision and the cover-up that went all the way to the United States Supreme Court.  Alternative Facts will also examine the parallels to the current climate of fear, attitudes towards immigrant communities, and similar attempts to abuse the powers of the government.
