Shawn Kosmerly

Christin Milloy was the first transgendered person to run for office in the Ontario Provincial government in 2011.

CHILDREN OF REDRESS

CHILDREN OF REDRESS

Greg Masuda

In 1942 the Canadian Government ordered the uprooting of 22,000 men, women, and children in one of the nations' largest and cruelest dispossessions and dispersals ever. A generation later, Japanese Canadians fought back and won. Twenty-five years later, Children of Redress uncovers the struggle in detail.

The Power of the Spirit

Dr. Raoul McKay / Jesse Green

Family relationships and traditional teachings of Indigenous people were severely disrupted by the Canadian Government and church-run Residential and Confessional schools from the late 1800s until well into the 20th century. The Power of the Spirit explores state-sanctioned attempts to “take the Indian out of the child” and the efforts Indigenous people embarked on in the 1950s and 60s to chart new grounds for education and spirituality based on traditional learning.

THE SPIRIT OF NIHONMACHI

THE SPIRIT OF NIHONMACHI

Greg Masuda

Nihonmachi [日本町 or 日本街 lit. "Japan town" or "Japan street"] is a term used to refer to historical Japanese communities. Before the Second World War, Powell Street, in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside (DTES) was home to many Japanese Canadians. Today, poverty, mental illness and drug addiction pervade. Yet for a few days each summer, the neighbourhood returns to Nihonmachi when the Powell Street Festival returns to the area to celebrate Japanese Canadian culture with a dynamic and inclusive program of art music, dance, food and sport.
