Eve & The Fire Horse

Absolutely enthralling! Inspired!
An operatic goldfish, Buddha and Jesus dancing the foxtrot - just whimsical bits in this directors funny, touching, thoroughly enchanting feature debut.
-The Globe & Mail
Exceptional! A slice of delicately childhood.


Eve is a precocious nine year-old girl with a wild imagination growing up in a traditional Chinese immigrant family in Vancouver where Confucian doctrines, superstitious obsessions and divine visions abound. When Buddhism and Catholicism are thrown into the mix, life for Eve and her 11-year-old prim and authoritative sister, Karena, escalates into a fantasia of catastrophe, sainthood and cultural confusion.
