The Exhibition
SEPTEMBER 28 AT 7PM
The Exhibition
Miho Yamamoto & Damon Vignale - Vancouver, BC - 92 min

Mid-'90s, Vancouver, B.C.: a series of young, marginalized women (mostly drug-addicted sex workers) and many Aboriginal go missing. Despite inescapable evidence this is the work of a serial killer, and despite the emergence of an extremely likely suspect (pig farmer Robert Pickton), the indifferent Vancouver police delay and largely ignore the case, ultimately costing multiple more women their lives. What is eventually discovered is the largest serial killer case in Canadian history.

In response, renowned artist Pamela Masik attempts to mount a confrontational art exhibit featuring portraits of the victims. Despite what appears to be a sincere, self-funded attempt to draw attention away from the killer and towards the victims and the societal issues that cause such crimes to occur, her motivations are questioned.

The Exhibition is a moving documentary about a disturbing part of Vancouver's past. It raises questions about the meaning of art, censorship, cultural identity and the systematic forgetting of marginalized peoples' lives and deaths.
