Vancouver's Chinatown

Top of page

The flavor of the Orient is brought to the screen as Fred Davis visits the busy Vancouver Chinese community. He interviews President W. Foon Sien of the Chinese Benevolent Association, is shown through the display rooms of Juo Seun Importers Limited, and the typesetting room of the Chinese Times. A highlight is a performance of the ceremonial "Lion Dance."
