Directress Film Festival: Window Horses (2016)

Film
Sunday, March 12
1 pm
Cost: Free
A young Canadian poet with Chinese and Persian parents travels to Iran to perform at a poetry festival.

Canada | 85 min | NR | DCP | Dir. Ann Marie Fleming

Rosie Ming, a young Canadian poet, is invited to perform at a Poetry Festival in Shiraz, Iran, but she’d rather be in Paris. She lives at home with her over-protective Chinese grandparents and has never been anywhere by herself. Once in Iran, she finds herself in the company of poets and Persians, all who tell her stories that force her to confront her past; the Iranian father she assumed abandoned her and the nature of Poetry itself. It’s about building bridges between cultural and generational divides. It’s about being curious. Staying open. And finding your own voice through the magic of poetry. (Official Site)

"Tapping a host of fellow animators to create a visually rich tapestry, director-writer-animator Ann Marie Fleming creates an entertaining, educational, and poignant tale about identify and imagination that is filled with stories and poetry." - Alissa Simon (Variety)

This event is intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff and Union members and guests.
