This year, I joined thousands of other film fans who have taken on the challenge to watch 52 films directed by women in 2016.  It’s part of a campaign using the hashtag #52filmsbywomen.  I’m throwing in an additional twist and making them all Canadian films.

My selection for film 8 is the film Stay (2013) by director Wiebke von Carolsfeld.

Aiden Quinn and Taylor Shilling play lovers who reach a crossroads in their lives and in the lives of people connected to them when they finds out she’s pregnant in the feature film Stay by director Wiebke von Carolsfeld.  The film is shot on location in Montreal and Ireland.

Happy New Year, everyone.  It’s the annual resolution season. This year, I have joined thousands of other film fans who have taken on the challenge to watch 52 films directed by women in 2016.  It’s part of a campaign using the hashtag #52filmsbywomen.  I’m throwing in an additional twist and making them all Canadian films.  I’m about 3 weeks late but here goes.

My selection for week 1 is the film Sabah: A Love Story (2005) by director Ruba Nadda.

“Sabah (Arsinée Khanjian) is a 40-year-old Arab woman living in Toronto. One day, when Sabah least expects it, she falls in love with the wrong man: she’’s Muslim, he’’s not. Keeping him secret from her family, she embarks on a whirlwind affair before both culture and love collide.” – Mongrel Media (Film’s official website) More »
