About this event

Riceboy Sleeps – an intriguing title, wouldn’t you say? Exactly who is Riceboy? And why is he sleeping? Following a family tragedy, a young woman and her child move to Canada from Korea, where all their resources are needed to contend with the social prejudices they encounter. Insightful direction, strong cast performances, and British Columbia locales make for an engaging story on how family ties can run deep but seldom smoothly. “Riceboy Sleeps is Canada’s next great coming-of-age movie.” Pat Mullen, That Shelf.

(English, Korean, Unrated, 1 hour and 57 minutes).

The Kelowna Film Society’s past seasons of great cinema have drawn local film fanciers since 2007. The prestigious Toronto International Film Festival has been the society’s main source of powerful releases from the world of cinema, including foreign language offerings, Canadian films, hard-to-find independent films, quality documentaries, as well as crowd-pleasing comedies, dramas and the occasional block-buster. Helped by many loyal volunteers, the staff of the Orchard Plaza Cineplex, 1876 Cooper Road, Kelowna, and the financial support of discriminating and loyal patrons, the society has supported local film students and film makers with grants, bursaries and other assistance totalling more than $30,000.
