ONE FIGHTING IRISHMAN--Wayne M. Collins and the Tule Lake Segregation Center
Directed, written and produced by Sharon Yamato. Co-directed and edited by Evan Kodani. Music by Dave Iwataki.
Narrated by George Takei, ONE FIGHTING IRISHMAN tells the little-known story of San Francisco attorney Wayne M. Collins whose uncompromising defense of the Constitution drove him to spend 23 years representing Japanese Americans who renounced their American citizenship while imprisoned at the embattled Tule Lake Segregation Center, considered the worst of America’s ten WWII concentration camps. Collins helped recover citizenship for more than five thousand of those wrongly considered loyal to Japan by claiming governmental duress was the cause.
