Anthony Shim | 2023 | 117 Minutes | Canada
Set in the 90s, a Korean single mother raises her young son in the suburbs of Canada determined to provide a better life for him than the one she left behind. RICEBOY SLEEPS is loosely based on the writer-director’s own upbringing. This is a fully bilingual affair that jumps decades and continents, bursting with ambition and energy, albeit in that quietly Canadian kind of way. RICEBOY SLEEPS takes a tough, hard approach to kick through the darkness. But once it breaks through that wall, the daylight bleeds in, blindingly bright.
Tickets are free with a PITT id, regular tickets $10, Non-Pitt students $5 with ID.
