Co-Presentation with Hot Docs

April 25, 2022

Hot Docs Festival and Images Festival present the Canadian Premiere of Zheng Lu Xinyuan's Jet Lag!


Hot Docs Cinema’s festival lineup presents a variety of thrilling theatrical premieres and a new doc series! This year, Images Festival is a proud Community Partner on Jet Lag, Zheng Lu Xinyuan’s second feature. Grounded in material from a 2018 family trip to Myanmar—undertaken to learn more about the filmmaker's great-grandfather—the agile and endlessly inquisitive essay film then incorporates contemporary reflections on the state of that troubled nation, COVID-era travel between her home in Graz and her family's place in Hangzhou, time with friends and intimate exchanges with her girlfriend, as well as moments alone.

Hot Docs Festival returns to the Cinema April 28 to May 8, premiering films like Navalny, We Feed People, The Kids In The Hall: Comedy Punks, Working 9 to 5 and many more. Visit their website to view their health and safety guidelines and programming schedule.
