Ottawa Premiere on April 15th at 12:30pm!
When their dying father makes a sudden change to his will, two half-brothers from different worlds – one a Hong Kong labourer, the other a Vancouver businessman – must decide what they value most – money or family.
Ottawa filmmaker Ben Hoskyn’s first feature film is Canadiana introspection and Hong Kong talkie melded into one – a tale of a family kept apart by circumstance and culture clash between the generations. Shot in Hong Kong and Vancouver, with many Ottawa locals involved in the film’s writing and production, “8 Minutes Ahead” had its world premiere at the Whistler Film Festival in Dec 2017.
