There’s also European premieres for Kayan, a Canada-Iran-Lebanon film by Vancouver-based Iranian filmmaker Maryam Najafi, and Chinese director Li Luo’s Emperor Visits the Hell, a China-Canada co-production that won the Dragons & Tigers award for young filmmakers in Vancouver where the film bowed (Li Luo pictured).
