Copyright: Leonard Frank by Director Eli Gorn
Leonard Frank came from Germany to Canada in 1892. Overwhelmed by the beauty and grandeur of his new homeland, he started carrying a camera with him into the back country. Leonard Frank became one of Canada’s greatest photographers. 23 minutes.


Pilgrimage by Tadashi Nakamura
With a hip music track, never-before-seen archival footage and a story-telling style that features both old and new pilgrims, PILGRIMAGE is the first film to show how the WWII camps were reclaimed by the children of its victims. The Manzanar Pilgrimage now has fresh meaning for diverse generations of people.  It was failure of democracy that would affect all Americans. This film brings new and much-needed insight to the lessons of the past for our post-9/11 world. 22 minutes.
