Konrad Aderer lives and works in his native New York City as a documentary director, shooter and editor. Through his nonprofit multimedia project Life or Liberty (lifeorliberty.org), Konrad produces documentaries on how immigrant communities resist wartime profiling and detention. His first feature, ENEMY ALIEN, was honored with a Courage in Media Award from Council for American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). Currently he is producing RESISTANCE AT TULE LAKE, a feature on the American concentration camp where thousands of Japanese Americans refused to submit to the government's "loyalty questionnaire" and renounced their U.S. citizenship. Konrad also freelanced as a producer and editor for broadcast news, NGOs, and nonprofits including the United Nations, USAID and the ACLU.
