The film

  • Film identity

    Original title: Window Horses

    Directed by: Ann Marie FLEMING

    Ann Marie Fleming has been making award-winning films for over 25 years: "New Shoes", "Blue Skies", "I was a Child of Holocaust Survivors" and "The French Guy" all deal with tough subjects (family, history, memory and issues of identity) with a light touch. She adapted her animated feature doc, "The Magical Life of Long Tack Sam" into a graphic novel, which won Best Canadian Comic and was nominated for two Eisner Awards. She is mixed race, calls Canada her home, and that has affected everything she does.
