November 25, 2017 4:00 pmOn Schedule. Selma Vilhunen, Finland, 2016, 160 minFinnish with English subtitlesThe other girls at the horse stable where twelve-year-old Varpu rides and trains have started to comment about her home life, such as her mother's odd behaviour and the fact that Varpu has never once mentioned her father. Pressured by her peers and overwhelmed by her mother's dependence on her, Varpu grows increasingly frustrated and embarks on a quest to find her biological father. But even as she becomes adept at advanced responsibilities - including driving a car - she soon discovers that the ability to do adult things does not make her an adult. Astutely directed by Oscar-nominated Selma Vilhunan, Little Wing is a "sharp and touching portrait of adolescence" (Toronto International Film Festival).. 380 Sussex DriveOttawa, ON K1N 9N4..
