Including Voice Casting by Shohreh Aghdashloo
Join filmmaker Ann Marie Fleming for this special preview screening of her award-winning animated feature Window Horses, a gentle comedy of poets, immigrants, and self-discovery. This spotlight screening will feature Persian music (Voice: Jamal Salavati, Ney: Amir Eslami), a reception with Middle Eastern food, poems (Saedi) and art-work from the film. Reception from 6:15pm, film screening at 7:15pm followed by Q&A with the Filmmaker.
Window Horses is a beautifully narrated and colorfully animated story of a young girl’s journey toward self-discovery. After being invited to a poetry festival in Shiraz, Iran, by a mysterious figure, Rosie Ming faces challenges and discoveries that ultimately lead to her self-realization. Unaware of the reasons behind her father’s disappearance, she has her perspective and conscience awakened by her experiences and the information she uncovers.
At times, it gives way to guest-animated sequences in which poetic illustration and artistic expression convey the spiritedness of living freely. Window Horses uses poetry, music and illustration to celebrate the value of accepting cultures, opening one’s mind and tapping into unknown aspects of the self as a form of self-transformation and spiritual transcendence.
"This is not just a visual treat, it’s a rewarding and unexpectedly engrossing piece of female-led storytelling."—Wendy Ide, Screen
