The directors of the White Rock Social Justice Film Society, on the completion of our ninth season, would like to thank our members and the community for their ongoing support.

In addition, we wish to thank all the local musical artists that have donated their time and talents to providing musical introductions to our regular Friday evening documentary film presentations.

This season ended on a high note with the superb cello performance of Ms. Kitty Chan at the last film, Regeneration – a documentary reviewing the impact of mass media on the younger generation.

In particular, we would also like to acknowledge the sterling efforts of two remarkable young people: Raj Chatterjee and Marina O’Keefe.

They answered questions from our audience in the First United Church in a mature and inspiring manner.

As Grade 11 students (Semiahmoo Secondary), these two fine young people gave us all a good feeling that not all young people are succumbing to apathy and techno-toys.

We look forward to our tenth season, beginning Sept. 27.

Herb Spencer, Surrey
