Kiri's Piano on Community TV

Kiri's Piano on Community TV

 

Northwestel Community TV is very pleased to present Yellowknife director France Benoit's film "Kiri's Piano" (2014) this week on YK Ch 709. Based on a James Kellaghan song of the same title, the film is set on the BC coast during the early years of WW2, but was shot entirely in Yellowknife.

It tells the story of one woman’s sacrifice while rampant prejudice tears her Japanese Canadian family apart during the Second World War. Kiri’s once joyful piano music turns bitter when forced relocation and internment take away her husband, her home and her family’s simple fishing life along the B.C. coast. But her beloved piano proves a powerful ally in her quest to retain her dignity and personal freedom.

Its always a pleasure to share France`s prolific work with a local TV audience. Please check the digital guide on Ch 709 for show times or visit the website at nwtelcommunitytv.ca. Enjoy!
