Xtra!, July 8, 2004, no. 514, p. 29
Review of former Torontonian Ian Iqbal Rashid's debut feature film, Touch of Pink. Touch of Pink is the story of Alim, an Ismaili Canadian living with his white boyfriend, who is cheating (sort of) with his imaginary best friend Cary Grant. The film deals with race politics and the main theme is how people mismanage the tenuous boundary between fantasy and reality, hope and dispair, future and history. The article also discusses how Touch of Pink came about.
