“Window Horses” is a beautiful, poetic story, with mesmerizing imagery: it is the first animated film featured at the Zonta Film Festival. Rosie Ming (voiced by Sandra Oh) is a young Canadian poet who is invited to perform at a poetry festival in Shiraz, Iran, but she’d rather be in Paris. Once in Iran she hears stories about her past, the Iranian father she had assumed abandoned her, and about the nature of poetry itself. This is a film about love, finding your own path, and learning how to forgive. Building bridges between cultural and general divides, this film adds more peace, love and understanding to our increasingly complex and conflicted world. 85 minutes in length, suitable for all ages.
This film premiered at TIFF 2016. Canadian actor Ellen Page also voices a character in the film.
