Tora (2010) Trailer
Trailer for the short film Tora.
A jaded city woman inherits a lakefront property in the interior of BC. Dilapidated log buildings hidden in the bush and unsettling visions of a ghostly 8 year old Japanese girl hints there’s more to her inherited land than she’s been told. Jenna experiences the pain of loss, the power of hope and the value of forgiveness when she learns that her new property was once a WWII Japanese Internment camp.
Tora is a modern day ghost story that should haunt us all. Canada interned more than 22,000 people of Japanese descent during WWII, 3/4 of which were Canadian Citizens. All of their belongings were sold and the profits used to support the camps. At the end of the war, the “prisoners” had nothing and were no longer allowed to reside in BC.
This poignant & sweeping story is set in the stunning scenery of B.C.’s Interior and swings between present day and the cold winters of the 1940’s.
