Also premiering is filmmaker Ryan Boyko’s award-winning documentary “That Never Happened.”

The featured film, screening 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 29 as part of the Perils of Immigrant Life documentary program, chronicles Canada’s internment operations in which thousands of Ukrainian and other European immigrants were incarcerated in camps, from 1914 to 1920, because of where they were from.

Public records were destroyed in the 1950s.

Thirty years later, people began reclaiming this lost chapter in Canadian history to ensure it never happens again.
