Film Screening: Riceboy Sleeps

Harbourfront Theatre is delighted to continue its partnership with FilmWorks Summerside, who present films that local communities might otherwise not have the chance to see on a big screen. We have recently upgraded our projector and screen, meaning you can enjoy this film in high quality, in the comfort of our auditorium.

About the film
In RICEBOY SLEEPS So-young is a Korean single mother who has immigrated to Canada with her young son Dong-hyun during the 1990’s. Determined to provide a better life for him than the one she left behind in her native country, she does her best to overcome the constant racial and cultural challenges that confront them. The film is a tender and moving portrayal of a mother’s love for her son.

Nominated for five Canadian Screen Awards and Winner of Best Original Screenplay. Nominated for nine Vancouver Film Critics Circle Awards and Winner of four, among many other awards.

In English and Korean with English subtitles.

This is the final Filmworks Summerside screening before a summer break.
