CANADA , China | 87 minutes | 2017

Post-relationship blues and family dynamics are deftly handled in this first feature from Chinese-Quebecoise director Xiaodan He. After a violent breakup with her Montreal boyfriend, a young woman returns to her family in China to try to get her life back on track. Filming entirely in natural light under low cloud cover, the director skilfully blends the shots with her protagonist’s feelings to present the immigrant experience from a new angle.
Original version in mandarin/french.
