Friday, April 7, 2017, 2017

Screening as part of CANADA NOW

Veteran indie animator Ann Marie Fleming’s charming WINDOW HORSES follows an aspiring Chinese-Iranian-Canadian poet Rosie Ming on an amazing trip to a poetry festival in Iran, where she begins to discover many things about her family history and herself. Travelling alone from her home in Vancouver to Shiraz, the rather awkward, tentative Rosie soon finds herself in the company of renowned Persian poets and writers from Europe who ask about her Iranian roots. While in this heady world of poetry and politics, she uncovers dramatic secrets about the Iranian father she thought had abandoned her as a child. What she learns will change her life forever. At once whimsical and serious, personal and geopolitical, this animated marvel features the voices of such Canadian international stars as Don McKellar, Ellen Page, and Sandra Oh.
