This is part of a series of first person posts in which we provide a forum for filmmakers and other artists to discuss their process, their influences and/or their experiences showing their work. In this edition, A.J.

The film opens in Toronto at the Carlton Cinema on April 18, 2014 with further expansion in the following weeks, including Vancouver on May 23, 2014 at the Vancity Theatre.
