Semiahmoo Secondary students aimed to bridge the age gap between themselves and seniors at the White Rock Social Justice Film Festival.

Organized by Grade 11 student Ariel Zhang and held Feb. 28 to March 1 at First United Church, photos were taken of pairs of youth and elders who worked together to promote social justice causes and draw attention to all generations working to make a better, safer more sustainable world.

Zhang came up with the idea after attending a David Suzuki Youth and Elders summit earlier this year at UBC.


Photographer and Grade 11 student Queue Qin took the photographs, which featured handmade signs that explain the cause that means the most to the subjects.
