This video was produced as part of FaceBC, a youth digital video project, created by Vancouver's Pacific Cinémathèque and presented in association with Portrait Gallery of Canada, a programme of Library and Archives Canada, and the Vancouver Art Gallery. FaceBC is an exciting project funded by the Multiculturalism Program of Citizenship and Immigration Canada and 2010 Legacies Now. Over the course of two years, youth from across British Columbia participated in workshops and digital filmmaking intensives where they created short video portraits of themselves, their communities, their culture and their province.
