“Coming Home Again” at the Busan International Film Festival (BIFF)

October 6, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - October 10, 2019 @ 11:00 pm

A Korean American man looks off into the distance forlornly.

The Wayne Wang directed and CAAM produced film, Coming Home Again, will be playing at the Busan International Film Festival.

“Based on a personal essay by Chang-rae LEE published in The New Yorker, Coming Home Again is an intimate family drama about a mother, a son, and the burden of family expectations. Chang-rae, a first-generation Korean American, has returned to his family home in San Francisco to care for his ailing mother. He wants only to fulfill his role as the supportive son, but must also come to terms with his conflicted emotions towards his mother.

The film takes place over the course of one full day. During this day, he attempts to prepare a traditional Korean dinner for New Year’s Eve. The one she always cooked for the family. The care and precision that goes into preparing this meal gives him time to reflect on the intense relationship between them. Memories about it become a doorway into a woman who was so much more than the mother he thought he knew.” – BIFF
