A Right To Remain
Join filmmaker Greg Masuda for a screening of “A Right To Remain” followed by Q&A and discussion.
“The Right To Remain”, a CBC documentary, looks at the Downtown Eastside residents and the fight to save the community from development. Started as an idea five years ago, Greg Masuda accumulated over 300 hours of footage. He says “’The Right to Remain’ is a culmination of my entire career as a filmmaker. As a Japanese Canadian, I could not resist participating in the advocacy for the Downtown Eastside community as it looked down the barrel of the real estate industry in the second most expensive city in the world.”
Once known as “Japantown”, this area was home to thousands of Japanese Canadians before World War II.
