The North American opening of Amu will take place in Toronto on February 16, 2007. Other Canadian and American cities will follow.

The Canadian release of AMU, and how it came to be, is a story in itself.

The release of Amu across the country is owed to the enormous outpouring of support from the Indo-Canadian community. A grass roots movement for the theatrical release developed such momentum that hundreds of people made contributions of $50 to $100 to ensure that Amu would be shown in movie theatres across Canada. The movement in Toronto snowballed and led to a similar one in Vancouver.

We, the filmmakers, are indebted to each and every person and organization in both cities and elsewhere who made this possible. It has empowered and inspired us to see how alternatives can be realized, against all odds. It is deeply moving when those whom your art affects most profoundly - stand up and go to bat for you.

We are dependent on the word of mouth for this film. Even if you don't live in Canada please spread the word to anyone you know there.

Amu will open in New York and New Jersey in Spring 2007 followed by Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Boston, DC and then other cities across the United States. Emerging Pictures is releasing Amu in the US. www.emergingpictures.com
