Montreal World Film Festival, here we come! “The Invisible Red Thread” is finally completed and ready to be seen! Our doc will have its world premiere in the ‘Documentaries of the World’ program at this prestigious festival from August 18th to the 28th. The one hour film follows fifteen-year-old Vivian Lum and her father from Canada to China to discover the land she was adopted from in 1995. She returns to her home city and orphanage and also meets Shumin Zhu, a locally adopted teen. The girls compare lives as the film explores the ripple effects of China’s One Child Policy and the ties that still connect Vivian to China.
We invite you to join us at one of the two festival screenings in Montreal. We’re still awaiting all the details, so more news soon on exact screening days and times to come. And if you can’t be in the theatre in Montreal this summer, don’t despair. There will be a national Canadian TV broadcast on OMNI TV this fall. More details coming later this summer.
