The Asian Institute presents

Rites of Passage Film Screening

Toronto Reel Asian International Film Festival


Working from personal home videos, filmmakers Kobayashi, Mecija, Nakhai, Supnet and Truong use experimental editing techniques, animation and documentary interviews to reflect on their understandings of cultural heritage and personal identities through their experiences with love, fear and womanhood.

This collection of commissioned works will premiere alongside an original live musical score composed by Canadian orchestral pop band Obhijou. In 2013, Ohbijou announced they would go on indefinite hiatus, citing a need for “time to take pause and allow for new experiences,” and a discomfort with the way that constructions of otherness had confined readings of their work to a single narrative. Obhijou’s performance at Reel Asian will be their first time reuniting in three years – a rare opportunity for fans.

This project was made possible through funding from the Inter-Action Multiculturalism Program supported by the Department of Canadian Heritage.

Reel Asian Members $20.00
Regular $25.00
Student/Senior $23.00
