The documentary, Directed by Ryan Boyko and produced by Armistice Films Inc., recounts the forced internment of thousands of Ukrainians and other Europeans from 1914-1920. Canadian law enforcement authorities targeted them, not for anything they had done but simply because of who they were and where they came from.
The Film reveals how public records were destroyed in 1954. Three decades later, researchers began the task of stitching together the story of this dark chapter in Canadian history.
Featured in this award winning film are the Mara Lake; Monashee and Vernon Internment Camps, along with the amazing Vernon internment camp mural by Michelle Loughery.
There will be a Q & A opportunity after the film with Producer/Director, Ryan Boyko followed by a VIP Wine and Cheese reception. (All included in the ticket price.)
Tickets available online through Ticket Seller, or by phone 250-549-SHOW (7469)
