About this submission

Limitation of Life tells the struggles of assimilation and identity conflicts within a first generation Chinese-American family in 1950s New York. A riff on Douglas Sirk's Imitation of Life, Limitation of Life is both a homage to the lush 1950s melodramas and a subversion on the genre by front-and-centering a family of POC immigrants, whom 1950s Hollywood rendered voiceless.
