FACING INJUSTICE: The Relocation of Japanese Canadians to Manitoba

Running time: 52 minutes 
Please join us for a free film screening and learn about Japanese Canadian history in Manitoba. This film screening takes part in conjunction with the Beta Vulgaris: The Sugar Beet Projects exhibit.

Through multiple interviews, archival video and images, director Aaron Floresco tells the story of Japanese Canadians in Manitoba coming to terms with a history many tried hard to forget. A story of overcoming indignity and redressing an injustice.
