Island of shadows the D'Arcy Island leper colony, 1891-1924 ( Visual )
3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A documentary about the treatment of Chinese dying of leprosy in Canada and their incarceration on D'Arcy Island off the west coast of British Columbia. When the first case of leprosy appeared among Chinese laborers in the early 1890s, civil officials panicked. Although medical officials knew that leprosy is not seriously contagious, the victims were banished to the virtually "escape-proof" island. Their only contact with the outside world was the visit of a supply ship every three months bringing food, clothing, opium and coffins. The dying were to bury the dead themselves. Although medical officers condemned the conditions, nothing was done. The story focuses on Lim Sam, a composite character emblematic of the Chinese men banished to D'Arcy Island. The conditions for the Chinese on the island contrasted starkly with conditions at Canada's other leper hospital in Tracadie, N.B., where nuns looked after the patients, a physician was resident and meals were prepared by a cook

"Converging on a secluded island off the west coast of Canada, a group of Israeli, Palestinian, and Canadian teenagers participated in a unique peace and filmmaking camp. Organized by the Peace It Together Society, the three-week experience brought together bitter enemies from across the globe to the forests of British Columbia where they learned to live and co-create in harmony. During their stay they participated in dialogue sessions before being divided into small groups to collaborate on films about the Middle East conflict. Through the lens of a camera they created seven short films that reflected their lives, fears, and hopes."--Container
Island of shadows ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Rooted in racism and fueled by panic over a feared disease, the tragedy of D'Arcy Island Leper Colony was prolonged over 33 years as politicians squabbled and lacked the courage to take responsibility for the sick and dying. The lepers, who were almost all Chinese, were left on this island with the only contact to the outside world being a supply ship that came from Vancouver Island every 3 months to drop off food, opium and coffins. Vivid dramatization and archival photos leads a thoughtful journey to D'Arcy Island at the turn of the century and a dark chapter in Canadian history
