Fae Pictures is announcing the launch of their first original premium drama short-form series, Streams Flow From A River, coming to Super Channel Fuse in Canada and launching On Demand beginning April 1, 2023. Super Channel is available via most cable providers across the country, as well as streaming live and On Demand with Amazon Prime Video Channels and Apple TV+. The series is directed by Chinese Canadian writer-director Christopher Yip (Fishboy), born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta. It is Executive-Produced by Christopher Yip and Shant Joshi (Framing Agnes), co- executive produced by Abdul Malik (Peace By Chocolate), and produced by Lindsay Blair Goeldner (I Like Movies).
The six-episode short-form series is a character-driven drama about the invisible struggles immigrant families face while trying to make a home in the West. A freak snowstorm traps a dysfunctional Chinese Canadian family together in their rural Albertan hometown, forcing them to confront events from a decade ago that tore them all apart. Today’s generation of immigrant kids bear the burden of the traumas we grew up with and the need to address the wounds of generations past. Hundreds of years of unspoken pain, trickling down like a river. What can we do with these streams flowing over us?
The Canadian Film Fest announced Streams Flow From A River as an official selection in this year’s slate, their first series in the festival, reflecting a need for more Canadian-made premium drama series. It will screen during the Canadian Film Fest’s opening night, March 28 at 9 p.m. ET, exclusively on Super Channel. To learn more about the festival, visit canfilmfest.ca.
