6pm at the Carnegie Theatre
As part of the Documentaries for the Thinkers program
Join filmmaker Greg Masuda for the test screening of a rough cut of The Spirit of Nihonmachi. Once every year for the last thirty-five years, the Powell Street Festival has celebrated Japanese-Canadian culture and heritage in the neighbourhood where the community first took root nearly 100 years ago. This film touches on the relationship between the long-running festival and the spirit of the neighbourhood volunteers that have helped make it successful through the years. Following the film, help Greg with the final version by providing feedback via a simple questionnaire. A Powell Street Festival Society production.
