Mural Routes is honoured to co-present the Toronto premiere of The Roots Remain on Tuesday, April 5th, 2016, 6pm at the Bloor Cinema (506 Bloor St. W).
The screening is presented by Cinema Politica, and co-presented by Sketch, the York Centre for Asian Research, Mural Routes, the South Asian Visual Arts Centre, Mosaic International South Asian Film Fest, and Toronto Reel Asian International Film Fest.
The Roots Remain follows Canadian-raised graffiti artist FONKi as he returns to his ancestral-home Cambodia; a country still grappling with the traumas of the Khmer Rouge genocide. The film is a heartbreaking and mesmerizing portrait of diasporic family, the legacies of genocide, and the transformative power of street art.
FONKi will be present for a Q&A following the film.
Tickets are available by donation at the door.
