For the 9th Toronto Black Film Festival the Goethe-Institut Toronto is pleased to co-present the world premiere of the German short drama “Family Trip” by Chinese-born Berlin-based director Danting Chen. Focusing on issues of identity, migration, family, and acceptance, the film not only amplifies major contemporary subjects, it also allows Chen to reflect her own experiences. TBFF is aiming to amplify innovative, strong, diverse, and bold perspectives such as Chen’s for audiences across Canada. The TBFF short films can be watched worldwide and are not subject to geo-blocking!
About the storyline: An Afro-Italian boy revisits Amantea with his father, a town on the Tyrrhenian coast where they took refuge years ago. Yet their world is again threatened to scatter as he encounters a little girl who is about to bring her destructive family into play.
Films can be watched across Canada Feb 10-21 by purchasing tickets or passes:
