Everything Will Be movie poster

NFB film Club Presents:
Everything Will Be


Peter Gzowski (Sutton) Branch: Friday, April 24, 2pm
Running time: approx. 85 minutes

Sundance award-winning director Julia Kwan’s documentary Everything Will Be captures the subtle nuances of a culturally diverse neighbourhood—Vancouver’s once thriving Chinatown—in the midst of transformation. The community’s oldest and newest members offer their intimate perspectives on the shifting landscape as they reflect on change, memory and legacy. Night and day, a neon sign that reads "EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE ALRIGHT" looms over Chinatown. Everything is going to be alright, indeed, but the big question is for whom?

Watch the trailer. View the poster. Everything Will Be
