Nov 16 Be sure to watch the premiere of Viveka Melki’s new documentary, “The Fence” on CBC’s Documentary Channel on Sunday, December 6 at 9pm ET / 6pm PT. In this captivating film - set before, during and after the Battle of Hong Kong - prisoners of war and their relatives reflect on how one of the longest incarcerations of WW II affected their lives both inside and outside the prison camps. In a broader sense, the film examines how time and history have created a ‘fence’ separating truth, memory, and forgiveness. The film’s web site, www.thefencedoc.ca, contains further information, including the trailer, which you can also find here. Follow on FACEBOOK and TWITTER .
