About this submission

After moving back to my parent’s house for COVID-19 quarantine, I began to appreciate my mother's tender care and extra efforts more. “Have You Eaten?” is a candid conversation between my mother and I, chronicling our different views towards immigration to Canada, the taste of home, miscommunications and the cultural, generational and language barriers between us, spoken in my mother tongue- Mandarin Chinese. This film is especially important in this time for the Asian communities as we fight against Asian hate and celebrate our food, culture and traditional values.
