Event: Touch of Pink - outdoor screening
Grab a blanket and your nearest and dearest for our outdoor screening of Touch of Pink!
Touch of Pink is presented in partnership with The 519's Backyard Cinema Series.
The Backyard Cinema Series brings Toronto together for a night out at the movies. This series is part of Summer in the Green Space on Church; a community-led initiative of The 519 Church Street Community Centre that aims to maximize the use of local parkland in new and interesting ways.
About the film:
Alim is a young gay Ismaili Muslim man. Born in Kenya and raised in Toronto, he moved to London to get away from his conservative upbringing. He faces the hardships of coming out to his mother Nuru, as well as hardships in his relationship with his boyfriend Giles. Alim has an imaginary friend (or maybe a guardian angel or ghost friend, depending on how literally or symbolically one takes the film) who is supposedly Cary Grant, who gives Alim advice when Alim is in trouble. Unfortunately, the advice often seems to make more trouble.
