National Canadian Film Day is back, and we’re partnering with explorASIAN, REEL CANADA, the H.R.MacMillan Space Centre, and the Museum of Vancouver to bring you a very special encore screening of Canadian filmmaker Ashley Duong’s A Time to Swim, winner of the Director’s Guild of Canada Best Canadian Feature Award at our 2017 Vancouver Asian Film Festival in November.
This FREE SCREENING is part of an event held in communities across the country on April 18, 2018, to expose Canadians to some great Canadian films, and our screening will take place at 7pm in the STAR THEATRE at the H.R.MacMillan Space Centre!
Come and experience this important film about a Montreal man and his family who travel back to his home village deep in the forests of Malaysia and use GPS technology to help their indigenous people protect their traditional lands from encroaching environmental destruction. Filmmaker Ashley Duong will join us from Montreal via skype following the film for a brief Q&A.
The film will be preceded by “Re Lekuah” by Alena Murang, directed by Ashley Duong, the first-ever music video created in the indigenous Kelabit language of Borneo.
Capacity is very limited, so claim one of the remaining tickets as soon as possible on Eventbrite!
