Director(s):Diana Dai


The first few months in a new country can be difficult when you’re learning a new culture, language, and setting down roots in an unfamiliar place. When she left her rural village in the Philippines for Canada, nearly a decade ago, Melona felt the growing pains of immigration. Now, she is sponsoring her 26-year old daughter, 24-year old son, 14-year old daughter and the grandson of her eldest daughter to come to Canada. The World Premiere of My First 150 Days follows the family’s first 150 days in Ontario together, capturing their emotional journey of starting fresh in a new land.

Filmmaker Diana Dai and the film's cast will participate in a post-screening Q&A with The Agenda in the Summer host Nam Kiwanuka.

Tickets: $10
