Hold These Truths

Directed by Lisa Rothe

During World War II, student Gordon Hirabayashi fights the US government's orders to forcibly incarcerate people of Japanese ancestry on the West Coast. Struggling to reconcile his country's betrayal with his passionate belief in the Constitution, he journeys toward greater understanding of America's triumphs - and confrontation with its failures.

“the powerful and moving story of one man, who, in his own words could not give up on the Constitution”
