THE REV. CHAN FAMILY LEGACY: Five Generations of Vancouver
Chinese History 1888 to 2007
Thursday October 28, 7:30pm
Chinese Cultural Centre Museum & Archives, 555 Columbia

The Chan family first came to Canada to help start the Chinese Methodist Church and every generation since has made contributions to Canadian society. In 2007, filmmaker Halya Kuchmij interviewed members of one of the oldest families on the West Coast and made a documentary about the stories and achievements of Reverend & Mrs. Chan, their sons Luke Chan (Hollywood actor) and Jack Chan (golfer); grandchildren Helen Lee and Victor Wong (WW2 veteran); great-grandchildren Gary Lee (entertainer) and Janice Wong (artist); and great-great grandchildren Todd Wong (community and cultural activist) and Tracey Hinder (high school student). The many turns of the Chan family reflect the challenges of exclusion, the fight for rights, the strength of family and citizenship, and the right to vote. The festival is pleased to show The Chan Legacy, directed by Halya Kuchmij, from the CBC Learning Generations Series (2007, 43:37) and we are fortunate to have Todd Wong moderate the conversation afterwards. Todd is a descendent of Reverend Chan and the creator of Gung Haggis Fat Choy, the annual celebration of Chinese New Year and Robbie Burns Day (www.gunghaggisfatchoy.com) – an event that marries two cultures that once lived completely separate in the early days of British Columbia. Everyone welcome.
