During World War II, a select group of Japanese-Americans stayed out of internment camps in exchange for serving in the Military Intelligence Service, a unit of the U.S Army that was based at Camp Savage and Fort Snelling in Minnesota. The Registry captures the seldom-told story of this obscure unit’s contributions to Allied victory. It also presents a portrait of these men in their later years, as they gain recognition for their historic roles in the war, and reflect on the themes of identity, adversity, and duty.

Following the screening, there will be a Q & A with filmmaker Steve Ozone, and one of the film’s main subjects, Seiki Oshiro. This event is free and open to the public.
