Abu: Father

East Coast Premiere

Presented in Partnership with PFLAG’s API Rainbow Parents

Dir: Arshad Khan, Canada, 2017, 80 mins, English, Urdu, Punjabi, Hindi with English subtitles

An intimately open and dazzling visual memoir about the complex dynamic the filmmaker has with his father, who was at once extremely modern and also rigidly traditional and unaccepting of his son’s true self. Director Arshad Khan highlights the fascinating intersection between being gay and being an immigrant, as he weaves a dizzyingly hypnotic tapestry of personal and familial acceptance by employing home video, animation, and Bollywood films to express his path to self-discovery.

Writers: Arshad Khan
