Window Horses

The latest award-winning feature–length animation from prolific independent filmmaker, writer and visual artist Ann Marie Fleming (The French Guy, I Was A Child Of Holocaust Survivors) Window Horses tells the tale of Rosie Ming, an Asian–Canadian aspiring poet who dreams of travelling to Paris, which she considers her spiritual home, but instead wins a competition to attend a literary festival in Iran.

Somewhat out of her depth amongst the Shiraz literati, the shy and bashful Rosie slowly uncovers revelations about her own Iranian heritage, and the father she thought had abandoned her during infancy.

Driven by outstanding vocal performances from Ellen Page, Don McKellar and Sandra Oh, the charms of Window Horses’ whimsical animated aesthetic eventually give way to a heart–wrenching and profound story that traverses the personal and political with an assured grace and insight.
