    Breaking the Silence Premieres @ Wide Angle Media Festival

    Coming out of Stolen Memories, Breaking the Silence is a short documentary written and directed by Kagan Goh and produced by Imtiaz Popat and Kagan Goh will be having its World Premiere at the Wide Angle Media Festival at the Roundhouse Community Centre - 181 Roundhouse Mews - in Vancouver on March 25th at 7 pm.

    This documentary is 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 considers him to be a hero. “Breaking the Silence” is about Mary Seki’s quest to clear her brother’s name.
