Small Pleasures is a unique film featuring three women (First Nations, Chinese and European) who use the pre-colonial trade language of Chinook Jargon to convey to each other complex ideas about feminist resistance in late 19th century Canada.
The film is based on the life experiences of the filmmaker's great-grandmother Tsang Ho Shee, inspiring thought about inter-cultural dialogue over a century ago.
