Upcoming Screening of The Displaced View

I’m looking forward to introducing and seeing my film The Displaced View which was produced in 1988. The Displaced View traces a personal search for identity and pride, within the unique and suppressed history of the Japanese in Canada. Through an examination of the emotional and cultural links between the women of one family, the processes of the construction of memory and the re-construction of history, are revealed. Utilizing an innovative combination of experimental, dramatic and documentary forms, the film emerges as a deeply moving and compassionate love letter. Just as the official history of the Japanese Canadians has been thrown into question, so does the film’s fictionalized narrative, question documentary as truth.
The film will be screening as part of the series Early Monthly Segments on Monday, February 20 at 8 p.m at the Gladstone Hotel Art Bar. There is a suggested donation of $5-$10 for entry. Come out and celebrate Family Day!
