We Were Dreamers: Simu Liu in Conversation
May 13 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm$35
At this Canadian exclusive, join Canada’s hottest export for a one-of-a kind night of conversation and stories—and become the first to experience one of the most exciting and highly anticipated books of the year.
Simu Liu has conquered the world. He’s starred in Marvel’s first Asian superhero film, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. He’s turned Kim’s Convenience into an international megahit. And his onstage cameo at the Oscars, rubbing shoulders with Tiffany Haddish in a stunning red tux, was a masterclass in elegance and wit. Not bad for a kid from Mississauga. Now, this hometown legend is coming to Hot Docs to share his latest project with Canadian audiences for the very first time. We Were Dreamers is an honest and inspiring memoir, full of never-before-heard stories about his family’s journey from China to the bright lights of Hollywood. As Simu recounts his origin story as a Chinese immigrant, his comic mishaps as a math geek and failed accountant, and his ongoing battle to destroy cultural stereotypes, he offers a moving and universally relatable story about growing up between cultures and finding your family.
Tickets include a copy of the book.
