Taipei Dad, New York Mom (Unfinished)

Synopsis

Known for his work in gay cinema, director Mickey CHEN had always wanted to adapt his autobiographical novel, Taipei Dad, New York Mom, into film. In a rough-cut of the film, discovered after he passed away in late 2018, CHEN demonstrates extraordinary strength of will in excavating the wounds of his family: He invites his parents, siblings, and the best friend of his late sister to engage in personal conversation. He recites his writings of past traumatic experiences, even in tears. Though unfinished, a narrative structure has already emerged from the existing cut, recounting the life of a battered, solitary soul.
