Filmmaker’s statement, director Audrey Lam:
These two films began with an impulse to film something I had heard about anecdotally – a friend’s red boat, my great-aunt’s drawings. I liked thinking about where those things might belong in a life, and how rich and exhilarating time and place is to how we see ourselves.
Allison Chhorn and Audrey Lam are guests of the festival.
