Vancouver animator Ann Marie Fleming’s first animated feature is an extraordinary tale of art, history, and family. Rosie (Sandra Oh), a young poet of Chinese and Persian descent, lives with her overprotective but loving Chinese grandparents but dreams of an artistic and glamorous life in Paris. An invitation to a poetry festival in Shiraz, Iran, thrills her, and though she has never travelled on her own, she embarks on a trip that will change her life. Integrating a range of animation styles, Flemings tells a universal multicultural tale. Best British Columbian Film and Best Canadian Film, Vancouver International Film Festival.
