The Travelling Reverend

This excerpt from The Travelling Reverend is the story of Reverend Yutetsu Kawamura, a Japanese Buddhist priest who arrived in the southern Alberta town of Raymond in 1934.  Traveling the prairies through his more than half-century of service, he and his wife Yoneko helped bind the community together through the years of depression, war, internment and eventual prosperity. The Travelling Reverend is the work of film maker Linda Ohama.  

This film is one of the Scattering of Seeds series from White Pine Pictures. The series celebrates the character of immigrants who staked their futures and those of their families on a second chance in Canada.
