Echoes of Silence is at once a contemporary dance performance, historical record, and moving meditation. Shot at Vancouver's historic Japanese Language School, and featuring original music by traditionally based Japanese drumming group Onibana Taiko, this short film reflects on intergenerational trauma caused by Japanese internment and dispossession during the second world war.
