Eastbound, selected as best overall film in the 35th Canadian student film festival, is the work of Rita Tse, who graduated with a bachelor of fine arts from the school for the contemporary arts last June.

The 15-minute film examines the cultural expectations for women in Chinese society. “It's based on my experiences and those of my friends,” says Tse of the film, which won the festival's top award, the Norman McLaren award.

Now at home in Hong Kong, Tse says she was surprised to win since there were only two films in the festival directed by Chinese students. She has also entered the film in the Vancouver Asian film festival in November.
