May 04

Social Inc, in collaboration with the Library, is hosting a Wednesday Film Recommendation.

All Mohawk College students can access this film for free through the National Film Board of Canada.

This week:

"Minoru: Memory of Exile"

"The bombing of the American naval base at Pearl Harbor thrust 9-year-old Minoru Fukushima into a world of racism so malevolent he would be forced to leave Canada, the land of his birth. Like thousands of other Japanese Canadians, Minoru and his family were branded as an enemy of Canada, dispatched to internment camps in British Columbia and finally deported to Japan. Directed by Michael Fukushima, Minoru's son, the film combines classical animation with archival material. The memories of the father are interspersed with the voice of the son, weaving a tale of a birthright lost and recovered."
