This event is expired.

Koret Auditorium

In honor of Veterans Day, enjoy a special film screening of MIS Human Secret Weapon.

A secret unit of the US Army during World War II, the Military Intelligence Service (MIS) was largely composed of Nisei (second-generation) Japanese American military men who had pledged absolute allegiance to the United States at a time when most were facing social and political inequalities. This film explores an untold chapter in Japanese American history and describes how the MIS contributed to America's victory and to Japan's recovery after the end of the war. This film is the third in a trilogy centered on Japanese American history during World War II.

Director: Junichi Suzuki, 2013, 100 minutes
