Featured Films

Warchild (6 mins)

BC Premiere

Canyon War (2009) 53 minutes
Directed by Eva Wunderman
Hosted by Dr. Daniel Marshall and Kevin Loring
Filmed on location in the Fraser Canyon, the Canyon War sheds light on a shadowy chapter of Canadian history. Stories of villages in flames, bodies floating down river and American militias killing and looting as desperate First Nations try to hold back tens of thousands of gold seekers flooding into their land. This isn't the America's Wild West-it is British Columbia in 1858. Descendants of the war's combatants take you on a poignant journey to forgotten battlefields. From the battle of Boston Bar to the peace at Kumsheen, they show you how the war's consequences are still being felt today.

There will be a special post screening presentation and discussion led by Dr Daniel Marshall
