    HONORARY DEGREE CEREMONY FOR JAPANESE CANADIAN STUDENTS OF 1942 TO FOLLOW SPECIAL SCREENING OF STOLEN MEMORIES AND BREAKING THE SILENCE AT ASIAN HERITAGE MONTH

    A special ceremony will be held during UBC’s spring congregation to recognize and honour the Japanese Canadian students whose university experience was disrupted in 1942 when they were uprooted and exiled from the B.C. coast – a violation of their citizenship rights.

    Honorary degrees will be conferred on the students who were unable to complete their education when they were sent to internment camps in 1942. Degrees will be re-conferred on the students who completed their studies but missed their graduation ceremony because of the internment.

    The ceremony will be webcast live. The webcast begins 15 minutes prior to the ceremony. For more information about the webcast and to access the webcast, please visit: http://www.graduation.ubc.ca/ubc-vancouver/live-webcast.

    SPECIAL SCREENING OF STOLEN MEMORIES AND BREAKING THE SILENCE AT ASIAN HERITAGE MONTH

    WHEN: TUESDAY MAY 29TH, 2012, 6 PM UNTIL 8 PM

    WHERE: IRVING K. BARBER LEARNING CENTRE, DODSON ROOM, ROOM 302

          1961 EAST MALL, UBC, VANCOUVER, BC



    In celebration of Asian Heritage Month, please join us for a special screening of these two documentaries written and directed by Kagan Goh and produced by Imtiaz Popat and Kagan Goh.

    STOLEN MEMORIES, is a documentary about filmmaker Kagan Goh’s personal quest to return a photo album that was lost by a Japanese Canadian family during the Japanese internment. Kagan, aided by Mary Seki, his 70-year old detective sidekick, embarked upon a quest to find the rightful owners, find out what happened to them and return their lost photo album to them. Documenting the search as well as redressing the wrongs of the past is a symbolic “homecoming” – coming home in terms of returning to a place of self-acceptance, belonging, wholeness and healing.

    STOLEN MEMORIES reflects deeply rooted issues of prejudice which have affected the Japanese Canadian community throughout the last one hundred years, experienced not just by the family but by the Japanese Canadians who helped in the quest to return the ‘stolen’ photo album. The extraordinary story is a microcosm within the macrocosm of the Japanese Canadian legacy. 

    “It’s a very effective way of touching on an important common feature of the internment – loss of much family material due to forced relocation. The personal touch seems a good idea too, as many such documentaries have been a bit distant from the victims.” 

    – Stan Fukawa, former president of the Japanese Canadian National Nikkei Museum. 
    44 mins

    Coming out of STOLEN MEMORIES, BREAKING THE SILENCE is a short documentary about Akihide John Otsuji, a Japanese Canadian who was unjustly imprisoned for defying a racist law called the Dispersal Campaign.

    After the Japanese internment, Japanese-Canadians were given the choice to either repatriate to Japan or move east of the Rockies. They were not allowed to return to the West Coast. Aki returned to his hometown in Vancouver and was promptly imprisoned and labeled a criminal by the Canadian government. Mary Seki, his sister, considers him to be a hero because it takes courage to defy an unjust racist law. Breaking the Silence is about Mary Seki's quest to clear her brother's name and redress the wrongs of the past. 
    27 mins.
