WINDOW HORSES (THE POETIC PERSIAN EPIPHANY OF ROSIE MING)
Veteran indie animator Ann Marie Fleming's charming animated feature follows aspiring Chinese-Iranian-Canadian poet Rosie Ming on an amazing trip to a poetry festival in Iran. Travelling alone from her home in Vancouver to Shiraz, the awkward, tentative Rosie soon finds herself in the company of renowned Persian poets and writers from Europe who ask about her Iranian roots. In this heady world of poetry and politics, she uncovers secrets about the Iranian father she thought had abandoned her as a child. At once whimsical and serious, personal and geopolitical, this animated marvel features the voices of Don McKellar, Ellen Page and Sandra Oh. (Note courtesy of Dada Films.) DIR/SCR/PROD Ann Marie Fleming; PROD Sandra Oh. Canada, 2016, color, 88 min. In English, Farsi and Mandarin with English subtitles. NOT RATED
