Chris and I attended RUFF on Friday to celebrate the premiere of former RA Programming Assistant Anna-Marie Cheung’s film – THE DIAMOND SEA. The programme left me speechless with amazement, with incredible storytelling, casting, acting, and production elements. Anna’s film, about young heartbreak and friendship, rang painfully true, while second-half opener IN LIEU OF FLOWERS totally transported you to 1920s small town Ontario and a young girl’s all too familiar dilemma. This incredible group of students, graduates of Ryerson’s Image Arts Program, is sure to be coming to a festival and theater near you. I can’t wait to see what they do next.
