Being Chinese in Quebec: A Road Movie
Directed by Malcolm Guy and William Ging Wee Dere.
How do young Chinese living in Québec feel about themselves, their community and their place here? What do they know about the history of Sino-Québec? These are some of the issues explored in the feature-length documentary, Being Chinese in Quebec.
In the wake of an apology by the Canadian government in 2006 and the partial redress for the Head Tax and Chinese Exclusion Act, many in the Chinese community feel the need to explore their place in this society and the need to be included. This film will explore the younger generation of Sino-Québecois and their struggles of identity, integration and building a life for themselves in this province. The filmmakers will search out the Chinese settlements in the different regions of Québec as well as the Montreal region. This journey of discovery starts today as we see Québec through the eyes of two young Chinese, Bethany Or and Parker Mah.
