Opportunities to slow down and turn inwards can be hard to come by. Especially in light of a year full of stress and uncertainty, let these atmospheric short films provide time to contemplate and soak in a thoughtful array of color, sound, and movement. For those seeking experimental artworks made by emerging Asian American creators or a respite from hectic everyday realities, this program has you covered.

Co-presented by Grand Illusion Cinema

The split identities of being an immigrant's child leaves filmmaker Ellison Shieh with endless questions of who they could have been if their childhood had taken place in Taiwan, as opposed to in the United States. The film juxtaposes humid lake views in Taiwan with childhood photos in the Pacific Northwest, simulating the experience of considering alternate lives.
