Where Are We in the World? is a series of films that feature sites around the Lower Mainland shaped by often ignored or hidden histories of struggle and agency. The focus of this new initiative is to provide a strong foundation experientially to answer the question of “where” we are in terms of UBC and Vancouver as places on unceded Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh territories.
Join us in the debut screening of two short films introducing Vancouver’s Chinatown and the Komagata Incident of 1914. Some of the film participants will be in attendance, including Helen Callbreath, Shirley Chan, Jim Wong-Chu, Larry Wong, and Henry Yu. There will be time for reflection, discussion, and a Q & A.
Friday, March 6, 2015. 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm.
Doors open at 5:30 p.m.
Location: St. John’s College, UBC, Fairmont Social Lounge, 2111 Lower Mall
Refreshments will be served.
Please RSVP here by Monday, March 2 to reserve a seat.
