Feature documentary, 85 minutes, 2013, Quebec, Canada
In original Vietnamese version with English or French subtitles
Khoa Lê chronicles his trip to Vietnam, visiting his remote family for the end of the year festivities. Places and faces, both familiar and foreign, the said and the unsaid. Time has passed, miles too. With the colorful personality of the grandmother, portrait and self-portrait mingle with much humor and emotion. Little by little, the individual quest turns into a sensory experience, through a dreamlike mosaic of kinship, memory and identity.
