Jeanne Sakata's Hold These Truths is the story of unsung American hero Gordon Hirabayashi (Joel de la Fuente). During WWII, he defies the U.S. government's orders to forcibly remove and mass incarcerate all people of Japanese ancestry, launching a 50-year journey from college to courtroom and eventually to a Presidential Medal of Freedom.

FILM
FRI-MON Hail Satan? at The Little Cinema
Chronicling the rise of one of the most colorful and controversial religious movements in American history, Hail Satan? is an inspiring and entertaining documentary from acclaimed director Penny Lane (Nuts!, Our Nixon). When media-savvy members of the Satanic Temple organize a series of public actions designed to advocate for religious freedom and challenge corrupt authority, they prove that with little more than a clever idea, a mischievous sense of humor and a few rebellious friends, you can speak truth to power in some truly profound ways. As charming and funny as it is thought-provoking, the film offers a timely look at a group of often misunderstood outsiders whose unwavering commitment to social and political justice has empowered thousands of people around the world.
