As dawn breaks, the long-time merchants of Vancouver’s Chinatown are hard at work. They haul out produce stands and set up make-shift vendor carts in preparation for what they hope will be a busy day. But, as with many ethnic enclaves in urban centres across North America, their clientele is dwindling. This once vibrant and thriving community is in flux as new condo developments are approved and non-Chinese businesses move into vacant storefronts. With elegance and assurance, Sundance award-winning director Julia Kwan (Eve & the Fire Horse) poetically captures this fascinating transformation through the intimate perspective of both new and long-time residents, diverse merchants and new entrepreneurs who offer their poignant reflections on change, memory and legacy. Night and day, a new neon art installation that reads EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE ALRIGHT looms over Chinatown. Everything is going to be alright. The big question is, for whom?
