Images Festival opens
The Images Festival opens tonight with "Rivers and My Father", a film by Hamilton director Luo Li.
When Luo Li started studying film at York University, his family back in China was supportive...but a little mystified. Things took a turn when Luo went back to China a few years ago, and his father gave him a draft of his memoirs. Luo was inspired and decided to go back to China to make a film based on his father's stories. When it was finished, Luo submitted the film for his Master's thesis and then sent it to his father... And then things got interesting...
Luo Li joined us in studio to tell us more. The film screens this evening at the Royal Cinema on College. Go to the Images Festival website for more information.
