20 Polson St, Toronto, ON M5A 1A5, Canada
As part of the City of Toronto’s DriveInTO program, Reelworld Film Festival is proud to present a night of FREE programming at CityView Drive-In.
Set in 1996, “White Elephant”, is about Pooja, an Indo-Canadian teenage girl with an innocent crush on Trevor, a local White boy - a White boy just like the teen heartthrobs she sees in all the movies and TV she's obsessed with. A boy unlike all the other boys in her mostly Brown and Black neighbourhood. However, growing up in a majority-minority neighbourhood makes her efforts to pursue Trevor harrowing. As her attempts to spend time with him get bolder, the cultural divide between their groups of friends grows larger. The rift ultimately becomes more hostile than she could've imagined. But this isn’t a love story. It's a self-love story.
