(re)Rites of Passage – Editors’ Table Talk


(re)Rites of Passage is a special anthology published as part of our 25th-anniversary celebrations, and a follow-up to Reel Asian: Asian Canada on Screen (published in 2007 for Reel Asian’s 10th anniversary). Drawing on the intersections of interdisciplinary, form-traversing dialogue, the publication features personal and critical responses from media artists on the evolving sensibilities of Asian Canadian film and media creation. Hear from the editors on the process of putting this anthology together, and what to expect from this one-of-a-kind publication.
