    The Ventura JACL will be hosting an afternoon work-in-progress screening of Manzanar, Diverted, a documentary film, by Ann Kaneko about this wartime concentration camp in the Owens Valley. This film expands the story of Manzanar to reveal how water is at the heart of the experiences of Japanese Americans, Native Americans, farmers and ranchers, who contested the more powerful U.S. Army and the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power for control of this land. Actual footage of the gardens at Manzanar included in film. The filmmaker will be present for a Q&A afterwards.

    Time: 1 pm refreshments; 1:30 pm screening
