Highway to Heaven
Written and Directed by
Sandra Ignagni

Friday, February 21 at 1:40 p.m. (after Salaatul Jumah)
Az-Zahraa Islamic Centre, 8580 No. 5 Road
Richmond, BC

Screening will be followed by a Q&A
with director Sandra Ignagni and producer Teri Snelgrove.
A place utterly unique in British Columbia and the world, Richmond's No. 5 Road, also known as the "Highway to Heaven," hosts a multitude of faiths. Side by side are numerous houses of worship, including Buddhist temples, a Sikh gurdwara, Hindu and Swami temples, Shia and Sunni mosques, Christian churches, and Jewish, Islamic and Christian schools.

In this evocative documentary and meditation on multiculturalism in Canada today, filmmaker Sandra Ignagni merges beautiful, carefully framed images with a symphonic soundscape that illuminates the intimate lives of the faithful.
