The Cultch and VACT are thrilled to present the highly anticipated world premiere of Tetsuro Shigematsu’s '1 Hour Photo'. From the creators of 'Empire of the Son', '1 Hour Photo' is the story of Mas Yamamoto, a man whose life was swept up by the major currents of the 20th century; from growing up in a fishing village on the banks of the Fraser River, to being interned as a Japanese Canadian during World War II, to guarding the Canadian arctic against Soviet bombers during the height of the Cold War. His life experiences are particularly resonant as 2017 marks the 75th anniversary of the internment of Japanese Canadians. Written and performed by Tetsuro Shigematsu, '1 Hour Photo' is an intimate and captivating snapshot of a life lived courageously in the face of hardship and heartbreak; a moving portrait saturated with the most vivid colors of our times.
