Scope and Content
Our Journey is a tribute to Judy Schulz's mother who helped raise Judy's two daughters while Judy maintained her career. The film celebrates four generations of women in Judy's family, including her mother, herself, her daughters, and her grand-daughters. Judy's mother, Mrs. Suet Ping Yip, was born in 1922, and passed away in 2008. Judy was born in Hong Kong in 1955, and immigrated to Canada as an adult, later sponsoring her parents to join her. All of her five siblings soon followed. Judy's mother quit her job when Judy had her second daughter and helped to raise the two girls. Judy remembers her as a smart, kind, and hard-working mother and devoted grandmother. The girls knew her as "Pau Pau." Judy is proud to now be a "Pau Pau" herself, to two beautiful grand-daughters.
History/Biography
Judy Schulz has been a resident of Burnaby since 1980. She was born in Hong Kong and left home at age 17 first to England, and then immigrating to Canada in 1974. She originally settled in Vancouver. Though she had no family when she first arrived in Canada, her parents and all five of her siblings soon joined her in Canada. She worked in the medical field, and is now retired, but continues to live in Burnaby with Confederation Park as a favorite place to spend time.

From the film maker, Muriel Ferrari: "The film describes my life as a child, and identifies the difficulties that my mother faced. The good fortune that was bestowed on us, when she met a loving man who raised her child. And who I will always consider my “father”. Describes my path in marrying the love of my life. He has stuck with me and helped me with my careers and illness. Describes my diagnose of cancer and the prognosis of this disease. And the good news that came from this disease. Describes my great fortune in being blessed with grandchildren and what my future holds. I believe that we have to share ourselves and for me it is being part of other things. I take care of my family and have a passion for quilting. I enjoy volunteering at the Burnaby Village Museum, and being part of a fabulous walking group who fundraise and help people in need. What this film represents to me is that there is always a positive from a negative. My life gave me lessons - that when one door closes another opens. I am very blessed."
History/Biography
From the film maker, Muriel Ferrari: "Born at St. Paul’s Hospital in 1949. Family moved back to Winnipeg, Manitoba, where my mother was raised. Mom and I moved to Regina (I was under one year old). My mom was a single mom – before this was even a term. She and I were taken care of by a loving and caring man. We moved around following the oil fields. We moved to Vancouver in 1962. I attended Killarney Secondary. Worked for a mortgage company, in Vancouver. I married a wonderful man in 1970. We had two daughters. We moved to Burnaby in 1975.

Scope and Content
Arlene Belcastro tells the story of her grandmother, Dakota Lamb, who was born to Norwegian parents in the late 1800s in North Dakota. She moved to Milk River, Alberta around 1900, then took up residence in Carmengay, Alberta during the Depression where she raised four children as a single mother after her husband left. She supported her family by taking in boarders, ironing, and working as a midwife. The family later moved to Edmonton, where she was one of the first Avon ladies. In 1944, she was able to take a job as a pastry cook up north during the construction of the Alaska Highway and save enough money to purchase her own home. The film includes Arlene’s memories of visiting Grandma Lamb’s rustic cabin at Baptiste Lake north of Edmonton. Starting at age 6, Arlene and her cousin, Donna, spent every summer with Grandma Lamb. The rustic cabin did not have running water or electricity, so the girls learned about kerosene lamps, wood stoves, and using a cold storage trunk for refrigeration. Grandma Lamb taught them life-skills through chores such as gathering kindling and tending the garden, and encouraged their independence. Arlene recalls that they also learned by example from Grandma Lamb, who instilled a respect for nature and for other people and never complained about life or what material things she didn’t have. She was a resilient, respectful, and wise role model.
History/Biography
Arlene Belcastro was born in Edmonton and attended H.A. Gray School and Victoria High School, where she completed commercial courses. She was married in Edmonton at age 19, and moved to Calgary after her eldest child was born. She learned to ride a horse at Elkana Ranch at Bragg Creek while living in Calgary. Following the birth of her second son, the family briefly lived in Nassau. Arlene returned to Edmonton after her marriage ended, and soon moved to the Vancouver/Burnaby area where she has lived for more than 40 years. At age 50, Arlene began acting and is currently a student of drumming, a community volunteer, and an avid traveler.
