This year, as part of Bell Let’s Talk Day on January 26, TIFF has a free screening of Canadian writer-director Haya Wasem’s debut feature Quickening on the digital TIFF Bell Lightbox available to watch from January 26, 10:00am until January 27, 10:00am.
In Quickening, her impressive debut feature, Pakistani Canadian writer-director Haya Waseem explores the family dynamic in a new light. The result is personal and intimate, brought to life by an exciting new voice in Canadian cinema. Quickening is a reminder that immigrants and their children, in particular people of colour, who are adjusting to a new life, new goals, and new expectations can also struggle with their mental health.
