Have you ever heard of the short film Tora?

TORA follows a jaded city woman who inherits a property in BC's Interior and is haunted by a little ghost girl. Jenna discovers through dreams and flashbacks of her new neighbour (Suzuki) that her land was a Japanese Internment Camp during WWII. Parental Guidance: Drug Use

The amount of things that make this short film epic are, well, innumerable, but i'll try and pick out some thing to share:
First and foremost: David Suzuki, man, the man with the environmental plan!

Mr. Suzuki makes a special appearance in this amazing short detailing the injustices suffered by Japanese Canadians in World War II. What a fascinating and deep subject to take on in a short film, and this short does it incredibly well!

Catch this short on:
Sunday, March 6th
1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
In the THE ONES WE LOVE Series!
A series of narrative films looking at relationships in love and in families.
