The following is a press release from independent filmmaker Brian Maeda.
LOS ANGELES — As outrage and conflict continue to swirl around presumed Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump’s remarks on Muslims, a local director is attempting to shed light on the mistakes of a period in time in which similar sentiments were made against Japanese Americans.
Brian Maeda, a documentary-feature filmmaker who started his career on the Academy Award-winning Bound for Glory, with renowned cinematographer Haskell Wexler, is working on a new docudrama film entitled, We Said No! No!, focusing on the experience of thousands of so-called “disloyal Japanese Americans” who were sent to the Tule Lake Segregation Camp in Northern California during World War II.
