French and Vietnamese; 116 minutes

After fleeing Vietnam and waiting in a refugee camp, Nguyen An Tinh (Chloé Djandji) and her family arrive in Quebec to begin their new life. But adapting has its share of difficulties. A stunningly beautiful film, Ru juxtaposes devastating flashbacks with images of the family in Quebec, working restaurant jobs, making friends, and trying to find their footing in a very different world than what they’re used to. An examination of forced migration, isolation, and newfound belonging, told through rich visuals and an orchestral score.
