Sat, 30 May 2015 1:00 PM

If you have been to Chinatown lately, surely you have seen the obvious transformations the historic neighbourhood is undergoing. Julia Kwan, Sundance award-winning director and Vancouverite, noticed these transformations and captured some of the obvious and not so obvious changes in her feature documentary Everything Will Be.

NAAAP Vancouver and the SFU David Lam Centre are partnering together to feature Everything Will Be at SFU’s Harbour Centre in downtown Vancouver on May 30th. Join us to watch the documentary and hear from those active in the Chinatown community including:

Ken Lum - Local artist featured in Everything Will Be.
Dr. David Lai - Emeritus Professor, University of Victoria and Adjunct Professor, David Lam Centre
Nicole So – Hua Foundation

[Everything Will Be] 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?
