Everything Will Be: Film Screening and Discussion
April 9, 2016 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Join Chinatown community members, community stakeholders, and Chinatown Community for Equitable Development (CCED) members for a movie screening of a film called “Everything Will Be”, a film that presents stories of different community members in Vancouver Chinatown. After we watch the movie together, we will have a discussion about similarities and differences between the stories shared in the movie to what we are seeing in Los Angeles Chinatown. We will continue a conversation about changes in Chinatowns across the country and specific changes we are seeing in Los Angeles Chinatown. Attendees will also have the opportunity to become more involved with CCED and get to know Chinatown better. We look forward to an engaging and fruitful conversation with people who care about Chinatowns across the U.S. and Canada.
**Film will have Chinese and English subtitles when needed and the discussion will have Cantonese, Mandarin, Spanish interpretation**

This feature documentary by Sundance award-winning director Julia Kwan captures the subtle nuances of a culturally diverse neighbourhood—Vancouver’s once-thriving Chinatown—in the midst of a transformation that plays out across many ethnic enclaves in North America. The community’s oldest and newest members offer their intimate perspectives on the shifting landscape as they reflect on change, memory and legacy. Night and day, a neon sign that reads “EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE ALRIGHT” looms over Chinatown. Everything is going to be alright. The big question is—for whom?
