Thursday, 07/09/2009

APEX is proud to announce the completion of Reminiscence, a short film by Xiaoqian Chen, APEX mentee, with Isabella Ip, APEX mentor, and in partnership with Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA)and Asian American Film Lab. Special thanks to Matte Chi, Asian American Film Lab and Karin Chien, Producer/Curator. This film was produced for MOCA's Chinatown Film Project. The synopsis: A young girl and her grandmother celebrate the elderwoman's birthday as they reminisce about the grandfather, who has recently passed away. We travel back in memory to 1965 - the grandparents, as a young couple, overcome what looks to be the end of their burgeoning relationship after the grandfather returns to China to tend to his sick mother.
