Double Happiness: A Little Detour
November 26, 2022
Based on the live performance piece Double Happiness: Detour This Way, this short film traces the migration paths of two families from Southern China through Hong Kong to finally settle in the Pacific Northwest. Featuring 13 original songs by co-leading artists Nancy Tam (A Wake of Vultures) and Robyn Jacob (Only A Visitor), they weave through history with an art-pop aesthetic. With its premiere at the Chinatown Storytelling Centre, Double Happiness: A Little Detour retells personal and communal stories of migration from the Chinese diaspora in a contemporary context. Following the screening will be a panel featuring the creative team about the film’s creative process and the significance to Vancouver’s Chinatown.
