Abstract:

In this deeply personal award-winning documentary that gives an insider view on the contemporary immigrant experience, divorce and family psychology, and the personal filmmaking process, filmmaker Alvin Tsang reflects on his family's migration from Hong Kong to Los Angeles in the early 1980s - fraught with betrayal from his parents' divorce, economic strife and communication meltdown between parents and children. This poetic exploration of many unresolved years moves moodily across different channels and modes, bending into labor histories and Hong Kong's colonial trajectories. Tsang turns the camera on his own family, cautiously prodding for answers, but fully acknowledging that the only closure he can get will be from deciding for himself how to move on ... "REUNIFICATION beautifully documents modern Asian American immigration from the brave, personal perspective of filmmaker Alvin Tsang. It is A MUST-SEE for anyone interested in understanding the struggles and triumphs of the Asian community.".-Aurorae Khoo, Writer, "Nurse Jackie".."A bittersweet, masterful, nuanced portrait of a family's quest for a life filled with more opportunity and the subsequent fall-out. SPARKS EMPATHY AND IMAGINATION-- this is what documentary is built for.".-Jessica Green, Director, Maysles Cinema.."It's a documentary unlike any I've seen ... Of all the films I watched this year, REUNIFICATION is the film that's come closest to feeling like a TRULY DISTINCT Asian-American [film] language.".-Arthur Chu, SALON.
