Event Description

Echoes of Silence: A Conversation
May 24 2023, 7:30pm, no registration required | In gallery

Join us for a screening of Echoes of Silence, an experimental short film by Jennifer Aoki, followed by a poetry reading by Carolyn Nakagawa, and a conversation moderated by Dr Andrea Mariko Grant. This event is supported by the Past Wrongs, Future Choices project, the University of Victoria, Social Sciences and Research Council of Canada, the Frank Hori Foundation, and Open Space.

Echoes of Silence is at once a contemporary dance performance, historical record, and moving meditation. Shot at Vancouver’s historic Japanese Language School and featuring original music by traditionally based Japanese drumming group Onibana Taiko, this short film reflects on intergenerational trauma caused by Japanese internment and dispossession during the second world war.
