The Reel Thing presents monthly engaging films for the Richmond Hill audience.
Old Stone (Chinese: Lao Shi) is a 2016 Chinese-Canadian drama film directed by Johnny Ma. It was screened in the Discovery section at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival. The film centres on Lao Shi (Chen Gang), a cab driver in China whose life spirals out of control after he hits a motorcyclist, leaving him trapped in a bureaucratic nightmare because of Chinese laws that effectively criminalize such an accident far more harshly if the driver stops to help the victim than they do if he simply leaves the victim to die.
The film was named the winner of TIFF's award for Best Canadian First Feature Film. It will be presented in Mandarin with English sub-titles.
