That Never Happened Film

Description:

On October 21, 1918, the Morrissey Internment Camp closed, bringing an end to one of the Elk Valley’s darkest chapters. On October 21, 2018 – 100 years ago to the day – a series of events will be held to commemorate the closing of the camp, including the showing of this documentary by Armistice Films.

THAT NEVER HAPPENED reveals the story of Canada’s first national internment operations between 1914 – 1920, when over 88,000 people were forced to register and more than 8,500 were wrongfully imprisoned in concentration camps across Canada, not for anything they had done but because of where they came from.

In 1954 the public records were destroyed, and in the 1980s a few brave men and women began working to reclaim this chapter in history and ensure future generations would know about it.

78 minutes | Documentary | $10 at the door or ONLINE HERE.
Doors open at 4:15 pm.

Interested in learning more about the film? Join Armistice Films for a Ukrainian dinner to follow the film at the Fernie Legion for a talk and discussion with the film’s director. Advance dinner tickets are available online or at the Fernie Museum for $25 which includes movie admission, dinner and talk.
