Window Horses WINDOW HORSES Interview with Ann Marie Fleming and Sandra Oh

The story follows Rosie Ming (Sandra Oh), a young Canadian poet of mixed descent who grew up with her strict Chinese grandparents, believing that her father and mother abandoned her. She's been invited to perform her poetry at a festival in Iran, where she finds that what she'd been told as a child may not necessarily be the entire truth.


Multiple artists participated to the content of the film in order for the poetry, songs, and visual styles to blend a vast number of cultural styles, with multiple animation styles created with the same goal.
