St. Paul – Armed With Language: Film Talk

Plank Museum and Visitors Center at Historic Fort Snelling 200 Tower Avenue, St. Paul, MN, United States

In the height of WWII, Historic Ft. Snelling was home to a little-known Military Intelligence Service Language School (MISLS). Thousands of Nisei men and women (second generation Japanese Americans) were trained as linguists and translators and played a crucial role in helping the U.S. to end the war. Join producer Katie O’Rourke as she engages the film’s writer David Mura in a reflective conversation, a year on from the debut of the film.
