This Shore: A Family Story

Synopsis

This experimental documentary opens with a family anecdote: When coming across my grandmother’s painting in a random Chinese restaurant in the States, my aunt burst into tears. Using this anecdote as its axis, the film wanders through Cold War constructions, Taiwan–United States relations, generations of diaspora, family romances and ghost stories, while my family’s personal and collective memories are transformed into another tale of 'the Flying Dutchman', doomed to sail the oceans forevermore.
