“Daughters of Our Diaspora” screens at the Polygon Gallery

Daughters of Our Diaspora, 2020

So pleased to share that my short film, Daughters of Our Diaspora, will screen at the Polygon Gallery in North Vancouver, BC on May 18, as part of the event “Maternal Instinct.” I will unfortunately be unable to attend the event as I will be in Ontario during this time.

Join us for an intimate evening of film and live performance in celebration of Asian Heritage Month, in honour of our mothers and grandmothers – our 媽媽s, 奶奶s, nanays, and okaasan-tachi. Featuring works by local Asian-Canadian artists Clare Yow, Long Xi Vlessing, Alger Ji-Liang, Janice Esguerra, Lisa Mariko Gelley, and Sophia & Shana Wolfe, Maternal Instinct is a tender exploration of maternal love, grief, matrilineal complexity, invisible labour, and diaspora identity. It explores our mothers’ intuitions and our own instincts in remembering who and where we come from, and the complex and nuanced relationships we share with our mothers and motherlands.

Doors at 6:30pm | Films and Performances at 7pm
Artist Q&A to follow
