Reunification - Reunification
Jia Ting Tuan JuDVD
"When his mother and two siblings first immigrated from Hong Kong to Los Angeles in the early 1980s, six-year-old Alvin was forced to stay behind with his working and consequently absent father. Spending the following three years often alone in an empty apartment, he longed for his familys reunification. However, upon Alvin and his fathers arrival to America, that dream was utterly and permanently shattered. REUNIFICATION is Alvin Tsangs poetic and self-reflective exploration of many unresolved years that moves moodily across different channels and modes, bending into labor histories and Hong Kongs colonial trajectories. Tsang turns the camera on his own family, cautiously prodding for answers, but fully acknowledging that the only closure he can get will be from deciding for himself how to move on."--Contaienr.
