Plot

On June 10, 1940, Prime Minister Mackenzie King announced the detainment and internment of Italian-Canadians considered a threat to the safety of our country. Under the guidelines of the War Measures Act, the RCMP were given freedom to arrest any person with ties to an Axis nation without proof of threat, disloyalty, or subversion to our government. Out of 150,000 immigrated and Canadian born Italian-Canadians, 30,000 were listed as “enemy aliens” and over 700 were interned in camps. Some interned men lost sons fighting in the war, others enlisted in the war for Canada once released.

Rino Noto

Rino Noto è fotografo e regista con venticinque anni di carriera alle spalle, riconosciuto a livello internazionale. Nel documentario Piazza Petewawa: The Paradox, Noto padroneggia magistralmente le riprese: “L’attenzione ai dettagli è evidente nella capacità del regista di catturare sapientemente […] l’essenza di questo pezzo di storia, quasi sconosciuto, ma significativo, della storia del Canada” – Moira Romano – Fondatrice di ETV film Inc..

Trama

Piazza Petewawa: The Paradox è una storia canadese raccontata dalle famiglie degli italocanadesi internati durante la Seconda Guerra Mondiale. Il documentario di Rino Noto rende onore alle esperienze degli italocanadesi confinati nel campo di concentramento di Petawawa per essere ‘nemici stranieri’. Tramite interviste con personaggi di spicco come il Senatore Consiglio Di Nino e l’ex Giudice della Corte Suprema del Canada Frank Iacobucci, il documentario presenta il contest di unapagina vergognosa della storia canadese..
