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
