    STOLEN MEMORIES (43:39)

    A chance purchase in a garage sale turns into a fascinating detective story in this film by Kagan Goh. The purchase was a photo album, possibly from as far back as the 1930s, of a Japanese family. Who were these people? What happened to them? Are any of them alive today? The search for the answers leads to a striking look into what the lives of Japanese Canadians in the late 1930’s and 1940’s living in British Columbia just before and during World War Two. At the center of the story is a remarkable young woman whose life is revealed. The documentary features interviews with surviving members of the extended family.
