This is a shorts program. Select the film title on the right for descriptions.

Three filmmakers – whose families come from Japan, China, and Vietnam – reach across intergenerational relationships to tell immigration stories in their own lives. Whether using animation or home video footage, scripting imagined conversations or filming intimate, on-the-spot family talk, what decisions influenced their filmmaking choices? How did making intensely personal family films about memory, loss, and love, honour, heal, or reveal the pain of the past? Hear documentary filmmakers talk about what they cherish and what was challenging in turning their cameras on themselves and those closest to them.

Panelists:Tiffany Hsiung, Anne Koizumi, and Julia Huynh
