ABU   d. Arshad Khan/2017/Canada/80min

Already the winner of numerous awards in festivals around the world, Reelout is proud to screen Arshad Khan’s beautiful and intimate documentary to a Kingston audience. ABU is a journey to the centre of a fragmented family while they grapple with religion, sexuality, colonialism and migration. Through a tapestry of narratives composed of family footage, observation and classic Bollywood films, gay-identifying Pakistani-Muslim filmmaker Arshad Khan takes viewers through the tense relationships between family and fate, conservatism and liberalism and modernity and familiarity.
