WINDOW HORSES (THE POETIC PERSIAN EPIPHANY OF ROSIE MING)
Directed by Ann Marie Fleming
This film will be preceded by the Canadian Premiere of LIMINA from Joshua M. Ferguson & Florian Halbedl (Vancouver)
Window Horses is about a young Canadian poet who embarks on a whirlwind voyage of discovery—of herself, her family, love, history, and the nature of poetry. Directed by award-winning filmmaker Ann Marie Fleming, the film is filled with poems and histories created by a variety of artists and animators, who set out to blend a vast myriad of differences between cultures, philosophies, arts, and time frames. Window Horses takes a sensitive, subtle, and playful look at building bridges between cultural and generational divides. It’s a film about being curious, staying open, and finding your own voice through the magic of poetry. It’s a film about identity and the imagination.
“AN ENTERTAINING, EDUCATIONAL, AND POIGNANT TALE ABOUT IDENTIFY AND IMAGINATION THAT IS FILLED WITH STORIES AND POETRY..”
“THIS IS NOT JUST A VISUAL TREAT, IT'S A REWARDING AND UNEXPECTEDLY ENGROSSING PIECE OF FEMALE-LED STORYTELLING.”
Won Best BC Film and Best Canadian Feature Film at the Vancouver International Film Festival 2016
