Acts of Imagination

Acts of Imagination Movie Poster

Katya and her brother Jaroslaw, recent immigrants from the Ukraine, live in east end Vancouver. Despite their life long intimacy a chasm emerges between them. He struggles to commit to a single mom of Korean origin, while Katya, caught between history and imagination, takes up with an older man from Pakistan.

Eastern Europe intersects Asia in a film about the mutability of memory, historical repression, and the exquisite fragility of new relationships.
