Finding Fred Lee – Community Film Preview
With Guest Speaker Jack Gin
Finding Fred Lee is a documentary about the search for a young man from Kamloops, BC, who joined the Rocky Mountain Rangers in 1916 and disappeared at the Western Front. Presumed killed at the Battle of Hill 70 in France, Fred’s body was never recovered; his life was forgotten for 100 years. Filmmaker Jack Gin’s story of deep research, extensive travel, and countless interviews have resulted in Private Frederick Lee being sealed into Canadian history and forgotten no more.
Co-presented by Chinese Canadian Museum, Chinatown Storytelling Centre, and Ginsight Films, in collaboration with Chinese Canadian Military Museum, this community preview of Finding Fred Lee on Remembrance Day invites everyone to reflect on the sacrifices of young Chinese Canadians from British Columbia, and the journeys involved in ensuring they are not forgotten. Jack Gin will join us as a guest speaker at the preview.
