Variety says it's "Delighting in cross-cultural contrasts." Montreal audiences gave it their highest honour. Traces of Sandalwood anchors ReelWorld's Toronto screenings, and brings a rich story of one woman's search from Mumbai to Barcelona to find the younger sister who was ripped from her as a child. The twist (because ReelWorld programmers love twists): The sister is shocked to discover her adoption and her heritage. The film traces their journey.Presented March 7 by Global News.
Christian film, Steps of Faith is a light-hearted and poignant film starring Chrystee Pharris ("Passions", "Scrubs") as "Faith", a woman who quits her job, packs her bags and moves to a new town after hearing from God to work with kids on a farm. It's a stretch for her as she is not fond of animals and her interactions with kids have been problematic in the past.
Also stars Charles “Malik” Whitfield, Ted Lange, Irma P. Hall, Tracey Ross
