Duration

Director
Khoa Lê

Khoa Lê, born in Vietnam but raised in Canada, chronicles his trip to Vietnam, visiting his remote family for the end of the year festivities. He’s recording places and faces, both familiar and foreign, the said and the unsaid. Time has passed, miles too. With the colorful personality of the director’s grandmother, portrait and self-portrait mingle with much humor and emotion. Little by little, the individual quest turns into a sensory experience, through a dreamlike mosaic of kinship, memory and identity.
