A Time to Swim

November 11, 2017 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

A Time to Swim follows Mutang, a family man in the suburbs of Montreal who once an indigenous activist in Malaysia. Defying an outstanding arrest warrant, Mutang returns home to find his tribal lands under threat by timber companies. With the very existence of their community hanging in the balance, Mutang cannot resist taking up his old cause.

This film provides an unflinching look at the effects of capitalism on the fabric of traditional communities around the world through the personal story of Mutang’s search for belonging in a place where home and heritage are slipping away.

Filmmaker Ashley Duong will be in attendance for post-film Q&A.
