Finnish Canadian Documentary Film

A screening of the documentary film
From the Front to the West Coast:
The Recollections of the Finnish War Veterans in Vancouver

Date: Friday, January 23, 2015
Time: 7:30pm
Location: Scandinavian Community Centre
This is an emotive documentary directed and produced in British Columbia about Finnish World War II Veterans. The veterans tell their stories revealing history through personal experience: why and how they fought; the personal consequences, as well as the consequences to the country as a whole; tragedy and hope. The archival footage is fascinating. The captivating stories depict the significance of home during childhood and youth. It also tells the story of how and why they left Finland after the war to start a new life in Canada. Even though the topic is war, humour has not been forgotten.

Come and meet the film makers. 66 minutes in Finnish with English subtitles. Admission by donation
