The NFB during COVID-19: read the Commissioner's letter.

Passage Beyond Fortune

Directed by Weiye Su
Produced by Jon Montes

In their 80s, Gail and Mona Chow are elders in the Chinese community in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, which was once a central point in Chinese immigration to Canada and one of the largest Chinese communities in the prairies. They are now preparing for a major move to Regina to live with their son, Kyle. Documenting this moment in their lives, filmmaker Weiye Su offers an intimate portrait of Chinese-Canadian life on the prairies.
