Alternative Facts sheds light on the people and politics that influenced the signing of the infamous Executive Order 9066, which authorized the mass incarceration of nearly 120,000 Japanese Americans (13,000 were incarcerated at nearby Minidoka). The film exposes the lies used to justify the decision and the cover-up that went all the way to the United States Supreme Court. The film also examines the parallels to the current climate of fear, attitudes towards immigrant communities, and similar attempts to abuse the powers of the government.

Filmmaker Jon Osaki, Minidoka Survivor Karen Hirai Olen, and Alejandra Hernandez, Executive Director of Unity Alliance of Southern Idaho, will participate in a post-screening panel to discuss the lessons and legacy for today.

This event commemorates the 80th Anniversary of the signing of Executive Order 9066. Sponsors include Friends of Minidoka, Minidoka National Historic Site, Unity Alliance of Southern Idaho, College of Southern Idaho, and the Idaho Falls and Pocatello-Blackfoot chapters of the Japanese American Citizens League.
