David Siev’s documentary debut is a powerful, deeply moving account of a closely-knit Asian American family living in rural Michigan during the pandemic as they fight to keep their local restaurant and American dream alive. With rising racial tensions, the family uses their voice and must unite as they reckon with backlash from a divided community, white supremacists, and intergenerational trauma from Cambodia's “killing fields.”
David Siev will join in-person for a post-screening conversation.
Winner of the Audience Award for Documentary Feature at the 2022 SXSW Film Festival and the 2022 Critics Choice Award for Best Documentary. Part of our New Visions, New Voices and Campus Collaborations series.
