Directed by Gloria Ui Young Kim
2019, Canada, 86 min

This title is available to rent via Cinematheque at Home for $8.99. This is not only an opportunity for our patrons to see new cinema, but is an important way that they can continue to support independent film during this pandemic with 50% of all sales supporting our theatre.

Facebook live Q&A with director Gloria Ui Young Kim on Friday, December 4th at 6:30 pm. Moderated by WFG Executive Director, Greg Klymkiw.

Queen of the Morning Calm follows 29-year-old immigrant sex worker Debra, and her self-aware 10-year-old daughter Mona, as they embark on a journey of emancipation. Debra attempts to escape cycles of abuse and poverty while learning to become a more nurturing mother and discovering her own self-worth.

Reviews

Kim directs the film with delicate sensitivity, perhaps owing to her personal connection to the material... Queen of the Morning Calm is emotionally fraught, anchored by excellent performances... With its honest script, heartrending performances, and impressive technical proficiency, Kim's first feature carries the polish of an accomplished director and certainly proves that hers is a career worth investing in.
