Rate this:
Despite an infamous reputation for homelessness, mental illness, and an open drug scene, Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside has played host to the Powell Street Festival, a seemingly middle class celebration of Japanese-Canadian culture, every year for the last 35 years. This documentary shows the festival through the eyes of two Downtown Eastside volunteers. We will witness the transformation of the Canada's poorest neighbourhood into historical Nihonmachi, the heart of the Japanese-Canadian community, in the place where it took root over 100 years ago.
