    In community archives across British Columbia, local knowledge keepers are hand-fashioning a more inclusive history. Through a collage of personal interviews, archival footage and deeply rooted memories, the past, present and future come together, fighting for a space where everyone is seen and everyone belongs. History is what we all make of it.

    *************************************************************

    Dans les communautés de la Colombie-Britannique, des gardiennes et gardiens du savoir s’appuient sur les archives pour façonner une histoire plus inclusive à l’échelle locale. Grâce à un collage composé d’entrevues personnelles, de plans d’archives et de souvenirs profondément enracinés, le passé, le présent et l’avenir se fondent pour faire émerger un espace où tout le monde est visible et où tout le monde a sa place. Car l’histoire devient ce que, ensemble, nous en faisons.

    “The past is never dead. It’s not even past.” – William Faulkner

    In the new feature documentary Unarchived, co-directors Hayley Gray and Elad Tzadok highlight community archives across British Columbia to reveal some of what has been erased from the official record.

    Local knowledge keepers are hand-fashioning a more inclusive history through family photos, newspaper articles and scratchy old VHS tapes. These different collections tell stories of people building connection through work, play, protest, family and tradition.

    Through a collage of personal interviews, archival footage and deeply rooted memories, the past, present and future come together, fighting for a space where everyone is seen and everyone belongs. History is what we all make of it.

    « Le passé n’est jamais mort. Il n’est même pas passé. » — William Faulkner

    Le nouveau long métrage documentaire Le pouvoir des archives, qu’ont coréalisé Hayley Gray et Elad Tzadok, met en lumière les archives des communautés de la Colombie-Britannique afin de révéler certains passages qui ont été gommés des dossiers officiels.

    À l’échelle locale, des gardiennes et gardiens du savoir façonnent une histoire plus inclusive à l’aide de photos de famille, d’articles de journaux et de vieilles cassettes VHS égratignées. Ces diverses collections relatent l’histoire des gens que le travail, le jeu, la contestation, la famille et les traditions ont rapprochés. Grâce à un collage composé d’entrevues personnelles, de plans d’archives et de souvenirs profondément enracinés, le passé, le présent et l’avenir se fondent pour faire émerger un espace où tout le monde est visible et où tout le monde a sa place.

    Car l’histoire devient ce que, ensemble, nous en faisons.

    2022. Anglais avec sous-titres français, 84 minutes. Films gracieuseté de l’Office National du Film du Canada.
