Mark this year’s Hinamatsuri (one day early) with two short films which tell the story of women who lived through the Japanese Canadian internment.

Reiko’s Hina Dolls
It’s 1935. A Japanese family making their start in Canada receives a special gift from the country they left behind – a beautiful set of Hina dolls. The dolls take on a conflicted meaning as the family struggles to adapt to their new home. When war breaks out with Japan, the family is faced with a punishing choice. In English with Japanese subtitles. Written, directed and produced by Komaki Matsui. Original story by Yumiko Hoyano. 28 min. 2012.
