CAAM PRODUCTION OF WAYNE WANG’S “COMING HOME AGAIN” TO WORLD PREMIERE AT TIFF

AAM is proud to announce that Coming Home Again, a film directed by acclaimed director Wayne Wang (The Joy Luck Club) and starring Justin Chon and Jackie Chung will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. The film is a production of the Center for Asian American Media.

The film will be a special presentation at the festival. The narrative feature film focuses on a Korean American man who cares for his ailing mother while trying to master her traditional cooking, based on Chang-rae Lee’s New Yorker short story. He cooks a traditional Korean New Year’s Eve dinner for his mother that is what his mother always cooked for the family. It takes a haunting look at the sacrifices an immigrant mother and son have taken for each other.
