The Young and the Resistant

8:00am - 9:00am

From the BBQ meat fights in the 1970s to the 105 Keefer Street fight today, youth have always been resisting legislated and social discrimination in Vancouver's Chinatown. The Young and The Resistant follows the stories of past and present youth organizers; Paul Yee, Ramona Mar, Yulanda Lui, and Amanda Wan. Though Chinatown has changed, there is one thing that connects these resistant youth across time. This doc was made possible by the Quan Lee Excellence Fund for Asian Canadian and Asian Migration Studies.
