It Runs Deep presented by Toronto Reel Asian International Film Festival

The Toronto Reel Asian International Film Festival presents four stories by Asian Canadian filmmakers about our deepest connections to family, friends, communities and the land. Whether addressing an urgency to document ancestral knowledge or search for kinship, these filmmakers delve into the craft through a relational and embodied practice. Reel Asian aims to support and nurture Asian creatives through the media arts. Stay updated on Reel Asian and its upcoming 25th annual film festival in November 2021. Learn more at

THE WAY WE ARE shares excerpts of stories from interviews with 4 queer Asian women living in Toronto. Told in the present-tense, these stories are arranged in a way that explores the past as the present, and in doing so, immerses viewers into the real-lived experiences from a different generation.
