Redress Remix


Project Complete


Redress Remix is a unique project comprised of a 3 part documentary series and interactive living documentary.

Redress Remix tackles one of the most controversial Canadian government decisions of our time: the official 2006 apology to the Chinese Canadian community for the Head Tax and Exclusion Act of 1923.

The documentary film uses a unique approach that includes animation techniques, newly composed music and testimonial interviews, to reveal to audiences the events that shaped the Redress movement and led to the official Government apology and its influence on a new generation of Chinese Canadians.

The interactive web project, developed in conjunction with the film, allows Canadians to contribute to the national dialogue on the issue through a ground-breaking ‘living documentary’ experience.

The documentary is produced by Victoria Ha for Stitch Media and Executive produced by David Smith of S & S Productions with support from OMNI Television and the participation of CHRP Canada.  The interactive site is produced by Evan Jones for Stitch Media Inc. in association with the Bell New Media Fund and OMNI’s Independent Producers Initiative.
