It’s Wednesday, so I’m gearing up for another Free Flicks screening at Harbourfront Centre. It’s getting a little monotonous, isn’t it?
Well, tonight we do something really different, presenting Ann Marie Fleming’s Window Horses: The Poetic Persian Epiphany of Rosie Ming — an animated drama about a young woman who travels from Vancouver to Iran for a poetry festival, and discovers far more about herself than she ever imagined she could.
With voices provided by Sandra Oh, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Don McKellar and Ellen Page, and Fleming employing a nifty visual strategy, it’s as odd and beautiful a film as I’ve ever been able to book for this venue . (Here’s my NOW review from earlier this year.) I really hope people come out to see it. That means you, too.
Oh, and also TIFF held its launch conference yesterday and I wrote some stuff about it. Whatevs.
