Asian-Canadian filmmaker, writer and visual artist Ann Marie Fleming’s Window Horses (2016) features the voices of Sandra Oh and Ellen Page. Window Horses (The Poetic Persian Epiphany of Rosie Ming) follows Rosie Ming (Sandra Oh), a young Canadian poet of mixed descent who grew up believing her father abandoned her. She's been invited to perform her poetry at a festival in Iran, where she finds that what she'd been told as a child may not necessarily be the entire truth. The film will be followed by a Meet-the-Artist Q&A.
This event is part of the "2017 MooreWomenArtists: Women in Animation Film Festival," a four-day festival of animated feature and short films created by women, along with Meet-the-Artists discussions, an Adobe Creative Jam and the annual panel featuring women game designers.
