Program Title: Past Patricia Present
Description: The city might have grown and changed around it, but the Patricia Hotel has remained a fixture in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside since opening its doors over a century ago. Past Patricia Present traces the hotel and music venue's history and changing roles: as lodging for loggers, then the birthplace of jazz in Vancouver, and finally a hub for today's independent musicians.

Mateusz Lewchuk completed his PhD in high energy particle physics at the University of Victoria in 2012 and worked in the field up until 2015, when his focus shifted into writing,
audio works, and visual arts. His ambition to produce a documentary about the Patricia Hotel
stems from his personal fondness for the place as well as its compelling history and longevity.
