Vancouver filmmaker, director, and editor Lawrence Le Lam has had the idea for his upcoming movie, The Chinatown Diner, stewing in his head since childhood. The film is based on memories throughout his life, placed in the underground Chinatown hip hop scene and following a young beatmaker who, like him, has a parent who works in real estate.
Aly Laube is an event producer, journalist, and musician living on the unceded Coast Salish territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh peoples. She is a radio host on CitR and CIVL, the associate director of Cushy Entertainment, and the front woman of the local band Primp. In her spare time, she watches horror movies and panics about the ever-looming threat of climate change. As a queer mixed-race woman with a glaring inability to keep her mouth shut, Aly is very often in the throes of either rage or passion. In general, you can catch Aly doing too much all the time.
