Kevin Eastwood and Siren Screen Productions are the recipients of a BCHF Award of Recognition for British Columbia: An Untold History. The award was presented at the federation’s annual conference awards gala online on June 4.
This four-part historical documentary highlights the people, forces and events that shaped British Columbia. The series, which focuses upon under-told and untold histories of marginalized British Columbians, weaves together Indigenous, Asian, Black, and European truths to highlight the past.
The series consulted Elders, authors, histories, families and descendants of historical figures to create a pluralistic and wholistic understanding of topics such as labour and persistence, migration and resilience, nature and coexistence and change and resistance.
Eastwood provided a short acceptance video, which can be viewed below.
