The Manzanar Fishing Club (NR)

Action/Adventure 74

The WWII internment of Japanese-Americans from a unique perspective: through the eyes of those who defied the armed guards, barbed wire and searchlights to fish for trout in the surrounding waters of the Eastern Sierra.

While larger battles were being fought in the courts, the Manzanar fishermen were exercising their rights on the ground. This is the untold story of those who refused to knuckle under and risked all to go fishing just like other ordinary Americans.
