About the Film:
Part of Women in Film
Directed by Ann Marie Fleming. Canada. 2017. 89 min. Arabic with English subtitles.
Twenty-year-old poet Rosie Ming lives at home with her over-protective Chinese grandparents. When she’s invited to perform at a poetry festival in Iran, she finally learns about the Iranian father whom she had assumed abandoned her. Embarking on an unwitting journey of forgiveness, reconciliation, and understanding, Rosie discovers her father’s past and her own cultural identity. 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.
Directed by award-winning artist Ann Marie Fleming, and featuring the voices of Sandra Oh, Don McKellar, Nancy Kuan, and Shohreh Aghdashloo, the film blends different cultures, philosophies, arts, and time frames.
