This film was created by English & Social Studies students at Lucerne Secondary School New Denver, as part of their curriculum in learning about the history of the Japanese Canadian Internment during WWII.
The following is their Artist Statement:
We hope that others will be able walk away with a greater understanding of the Japanese interment, and the treatment they went through not only during WW II, but after the war as well.
What really stands out for us is the hardship the Japanese Canadians went through in the first uprooting when they were moved from coastal B.C. to the New Denver area in the winter of 1942.
We chose to make a short powerful project with strong imagery to give an idea of how hard the first winter was for all those interned.
