One World Film: Abu

The Canadian Centre for Gender & Sexual Diversity is proud to be the presenting sponsor of Abu-a film by Arshad Khan at the One World Film Festival on Saturday, September 30, 2017 at 8:30pm in the Saint Paul University in the amphitheatre. We are proud to be funding the attendance of the filmmaker, who will be saying a few words and answering questions.

Gay-identifying Pakistani-Muslim filmmaker Arshad Khan examines his relationship with his devout Muslim father in a courageous exploration of family, migration, love and religion, from Lahore to Mississauga. Through a tapestry of narratives composed of family footage, observation, and classic Bollywood films, ABU documents the tug-of-war between conservatism and liberalism of a fragmented family grappling with religion, sexuality, colonialism and migration as they come to call Canada home.
