The film STAND UP FOR JUSTICE will celebrate its long-awaited DVD release on Sunday, Feb. 14, 2010 at the National Center for the Preservation of Democracy, in Little Tokyo.

The highlight of the Valentine’s Day event will be a screening of the short documentary, The Making of Stand Up for Justice, which is included on the DVD. Over 100 community members volunteered and donated to this film project and their contributions are documented in this video. The DVD also features the STAND UP FOR JUSTICE film, with options for English closed captioning, Spanish and Japanese language subtitles, and additional information about Ralph Lazo.

Based on a true story, STAND UP FOR JUSTICE is a short dramatic film about Ralph Lazo, a young Latino American teenager from East Los Angeles who voluntarily went to Manzanar concentration camp. Nisei friends remember him as one who stood faithfully with his Japanese American friends in their most difficult time. The 30-minute film STAND UP FOR JUSTICE powerfully addresses the violations of civil liberties that Japanese Americans faced during World War II and reveals how one person’s actions earned the undying gratitude of a community. Read the full Press Release.

Cost:

The event is being presented by Visual Communications and Nikkei for Civil Rights and Redress (NCRR), a non-profit dedicated to participation in the broad areas of civil rights as well as continued commitment to redress for Japanese Americans and Japanese Latin Americans.
