Manzanar, Diverted: When Water Becomes Dust
Featuring Director/Producer Ann Kaneko (2021/2022 Lectures)
An inspired and poetic portrait of a place and its people, Manzanar, Diverted explores the rich yet painful history of California’s Owens Valley, from colonization to water rights. Capturing the intersectionality of the region, the award-winning film chronicles the efforts of an unexpected alliance of Indigenous, environmental activist and Japanese-American World War II incarceree women as they defend their water, history and culture against Los Angeles’ endless thirst. (Ann Kaneko, 2021, 84 min.)
