EVERYTHING WILL BE is a film that cut really close to home. The documentary follows several members of Vancouver’s Chinatown, which is in the middle of gentrification or revitalization, depending on who is asked in the film. Mike and I spend lots of time in Little Tokyo and the changes that we have seen over the past ten years do not go unnoticed. Condos have gone up where Tofu Festival used to be held. Señor Fish and Weiland’s, (what was once Atomic Café), have now been torn down for a Metro hub. I am not one who thinks that change is bad. I’m happy that folks are frequenting local businesses, but I’ve always been a proponent of balance. In EVERYTHING WILL BE audiences are taken on the journey of witnessing what gentrification can do to a historic neighborhood. Old timers, local business owners, and young people attempting to find their roots in the memory of what they grew up tell their story throughout this compelling and well-made documentary.
