Chinese Canadian Stories

[Vancouver's Chinatown: Past, Present, and Future] Yip, Jennifer; Yoshizawa, Alejandro


Vancouver's Chinatown: Past, Present, and Future uses the stories of Chinatown's buildings to chronicle the evolution of this important Vancouver community. The film follows Chinatown's history from its humble beginnings as a place and community for labouring Chinese men to the days that Chinese Canadians - like Yip Sang, H. Y. Louie, Ron Bick Lee, Mary Lee Chan - groups like the Chinese Student Soccer Team and associations like the Yue Shan Society strengthened the community and helped to extend it beyond Chinatown. However, today's Chinatown is losing its vitality and is becoming more neglected and the future of its existence is unknown.; 影片通過講述溫哥華唐人街建築背後的故事記述了唐人街的歷史變遷。 影片記錄了唐人街從華人勞工居住區開始逐漸成爲了繁華熱鬧的華人社區。這裡的華人社區的影響超越了唐人街及溫哥華。 但是如今唐人街已經開始逐漸淡出溫哥華華人的生活。唐人街的未來充滿了未知。
