WINDOW HORSES: THE POETIC PERSIAN EPIPHANY OF ROSIE MING. In this coming-of-age story, Rosie Ming, a young Canadian poet, is invited to perform at a Poetry Festival in Shiraz, Iran, but she’d rather be in Paris. She lives at home with her over-protective Chinese grandparents and has never been anywhere by herself. Once in Iran, she finds herself in the company of poets and Persians, all who tell her stories that force her to confront her past; the Iranian father she assumed abandoned her and the nature of Poetry itself. Rosie goes on an unwitting journey of forgiveness, reconciliation, and perhaps above all, understanding, through learning about her father’s past, her own complicated cultural identity, and her responsibility to it. It's about building bridges across generations and cultures through the magic of Poetry.

We hope this film will contribute a little more peace, love and understanding to our increasingly complex and conflicted world through art, poetry, history and culture.

Both artists welcome the cross-cultural representations of Chinese and Persian cultures in the film via a young Canadian poet in Iran learning about her culture and long-lost father. "I love that she's of Chinese and Persian heritage. If we can't get it [diversity] on TV, let's get it on animation," Oh said.
