From the Video Archives of Sid Chow Tan on Friday November 3

In honour of longtime Downtown Eastside documentarian and organiser Sid Chow Tan, this screening features a selection from his extraordinary collection of volunteer-produced video journalism. Sid’s vast archive depicts four decades of struggles, victories, celebrations, and everyday lives of DTES and Chinatown communities. On this occasion of one year since his passing, these selections honour the creative power of community-based media and the courage to shape our realities together. The screening is presented with gratitude and in solidarity with the friends, organisers, community television volunteers and staff who made possible the production, broadcast, and archive of these videos. Selections compiled by Sid’s collaborator Byron Peters.

This event is part of the Heart of the City Festival on Friday, November 3, 6pm - 7pm Carnegie Theatre, 401 Main Free
