The Manzanar Fishing Club is a feature length documentary chronicling the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II. It is the story about the internees who found ways to avoid the concentration camp security to spend a little time fishing in the nearby eastern Sierra streams. It’s a testimony to those who were daring enough to escape for a few hours of freedom and peace. This film depicts life in this “relocation camp” through the eyes of those who were there.
Manzanar was the site of one of ten camps where 110,000 Japanese were incarcerated during the War. It is located in the Owens Valley between Lone Pine to the south and Independence to the north. Manzanar (means “apple orchard” in Spanish) is now the Manzanar National Historic Site, a memorial to those Americans who were imprisoned there.
