Film notes

A story examining different human relationships and redefining cultural stereotyping.

Director’s statement:
I have always been fascinated with the idea that how brief moments and seemingly trivial conversations between people could sometimes change the course of their relationships. When I see people in a restaurant, I always wonder how many little stories are going on during those innocent cups of coffee and during that small talk between people. Another idea which eventually developed was that how each story ended up touching another story and, in the process, impacted the outcome of that other story quite significantly. Finally, the film also tries to question racial stereotyping in some way because certain characters in the story seem to behave in a very different manner than what is otherwise assumed of them. I have been living in Montreal for the past seven years and the multicultural character of this city has always intrigued me. Although the story of Take Out could take place in any other multicultural city, this film is my humble tribute to the city of Montreal.
