MANZANAR, DIVERTED: WHEN WATER BECOMES DUST, directed and produced by Ann Kaneko and produced by Jin Yoo-Kim, will screen on Thurs., July 8, 2021 at the Tri-County Fairgrounds as part of a local screening series of the film. It will be preceded by a panel of local community organizers. The documentary film is an inspired and poetic portrait of a place and its people and follows intergenerational women from three communities who defend their land, their history and their culture from the insatiable thirst of Los Angeles. In this fresh retelling of the LA water story, Native Americans, Japanese-American WWII incarcerees and environmentalists form an unexpected alliance to preserve Payahuunadü (Owens Valley), “the land of flowing water.” The screening is free to the public.
