Window Horses – The Poetic Persian Epiphany of Rosie Ming
A charming feature from one of Canada’s best loved, award winning animators, Ann Marie Fleming, voiced by Sandra Oh, Ellen Page and Don McKellar.
When we first meet Rosie (voiced by Sandra Oh, also executive producer) she’s flipping burgers in Canada and living with her overprotective Chinese immigrant grandparents. She dreams of travelling, going so far as to self-publish a book of poems in praise of France. Her Iranian father disappeared when she was a child, so when she’s unexpectedly invited to a poetry festival in Shiraz, Rosie is over the moon. The journey will take her further than she could ever imagine, as she discovers her heritage and the Persian love of poetry. Fleming (The Magical Life of Long Tack Sam, SFF 2004) tells the story of Rosie’s journey, both inward and outward, with great humour and colour-filled imagery inspired by a myriad of cultures.
