This screening will be followed by a livestreamed Q&A with director Warren Sulatycky, along with members of the cast and crew from Jasmine Road.

In the rural western Canadian cowboy town of Red River, Mac Bagley (a recently widowed rancher in his sixties) opens his home to a fractured Syrian refugee family.


Withstanding some opposition in the conservative town, Layla (a journalist and booza-maker - Arabic ice cream - from Aleppo), her young magic-inspired daughter Heba and Salem (Layla's adult gay brother) struggle to gain new footing in this new land.


Mac finds himself in similar circumstances as he seeks for meaning and hope after the loss of his wife. While waiting for news of her missing husband, Layla introduces Mac to her Muslim culture. She proposes they partner in opening a booza ice cream shop to help them both move forward. The venture may just hold the promise for a new future.

Winner of the Best Canadian Feature Drama Award at the Edmonton International Film Festival.

“Sulatycky has a reverence for character, and a patient way with the lives of his characters, and they all come to a kind of marvelous life in Jasmine Road.” - Stephen Hunt, CTV
