Generations of film

The gala showing the films collected in the project What Generation Gap? takes place July 23 from 12:30-4 p.m. at the Surrey Arts Centre, 13750 88 Ave.

The event is the culmination of months of work for Mangla Bansal, owner of Tell Your Story Productions Inc.

Bansal’s longtime friendship with senior Kay Charter – Now 104 years old – spawned the idea of guiding 12 youths aged 14-18 to produce videos about seniors the were paired with.

The project took place in partnership with The city’s Parks, Recreation and Culture department and The Surrey School District’s Safe Schools Department.

Admission to the gala is free.
