About this submission
The film is based on the director’s lived experience as a Chinese immigrant daughter. The story is an attempt to illustrate the first day of a Chinese transplant eating lunch at a rural, predominantly white public high school, and she starts to feel othered and isolated, but preserves her identity through eating dumpling she brought from home.
This film is dedicated to her mother and all the immigrant families in separation. (This is a fine cut, without color correction and leveled soundmix.) Looking especially for notes on the narrative and story.
