ABU is a journey to the centre of a fragmented family while they grapple with religion, sexuality, colonialism and migration. Through a tapestry of narratives composed of family footage, observation and classic Bollywood films, gay-identifying Pakistani-Muslim filmmaker Arshad Khan takes viewers through the tense relationships between family and fate, conservatism and liberalism and modernity and familiarity.

Arshad Khan will join us for a Q&A after the film. Refreshments will be served, all are welcome!

This presentation is made possible through funding by the Canada Council for the Arts, and our public, individual and union supporters.
