Vancouver filmmaker Jordan Paterson spent two years crafting this moving documentary about the historical injustices faced by Chinese migrants during the last century, and the impact of the Head Tax and Exlusion Act on their lives. During the exclusion era in the early half of the 20th century, Chinese immigrants were not allowed to bring their families to Canada. The result was a "bachelor society" of Chinese immigrants, and wives left to fend for themselves and their children back home in China. Some families were never reunited. Filmed on location in BC and throughout China’s Guangdong province, From C to C contrasts the experiences of the migrants with the views of contemporary Chinese-Canadian youth.
