On March 25, celebrated filmmaker Deepa Mehta brings her latest feature, Funny Boy, to the Canadian Film Forum. Ann-Marie MacDonald, acclaimed actor, novelist, and playwright, will moderate the discussion that follows.

A moving look at a young man coming of age amid sweeping political strife, Funny Boy follows Arjie from boyhood to his teens in Sri Lanka of the 70s and 80s.
