Asian Canadian Film Series 2017
This is the second presentation of the Asian Canadian film series, featuring Canadian made films for Asian heritage month. In a time where Hollywood continues to whitewash films and leave diverse voices out of the conversation, it’s more important than ever to show Asian people on the screen. This year’s films are all recent releases, all of which are multi-faceted, and multicultural. Curated by Alexis Kienlen.
