EST Studios has acquired international sales rights for Fae Pictures series “Streams Flow From A River”. The premium drama was premiered internationally at the Canneseries Short Form Competition during MIPTV and EST Studios will introduce the 6-episode short-form series / 6-chapter feature film to buyers at the upcoming Marché du Film next month.

Fae Pictures’ president Shant Joshi says, “On our mission to decolonize Hollywood and bring dynamic global-facing content to audiences, we couldn’t have been happier to team up with EST Studios, a media company that is unapologetically championing the voice of global Asian youth throughout the diaspora.”

Created by Christopher Yip, “Streams Flow From A River” illustrates the struggles Chinese Canadian immigrant families face while making a home in the West. The series follows the Chow family, who dreamed of owning land and placed their bets on a laundromat in the tiny rural town of Frank, Alberta. When a freak snowstorm traps the dysfunctional family together in their hometown, they are forced to confront events from a decade ago that tore them all apart.

Starring veteran Chinese Canadian actors who never got a chance to play a lead role, Jane Luk and Simon Sinn, and introducing rising stars Liam Ma and Danielle Ayow, the series is the only English-Canadian title in selection in this year’s Canneseries lineup.

Produced by Shant Joshi (Framing Agnes), Lindsay Blair Goeldner (I Like Movies), Abdul Malik (Peace by Chocolate), and Lauren Saarimaki at Fae Pictures, the series is backed by the Independent Production Fund, Bell Fund, Ontario Creates, and Canadian broadcaster Super Channel.
