Food From Ah Lan

By Peter CS Lee with 6.9

drama · Short Films

The film offers a single moment in time, a brief narrative that ties a past and a present circumstance. In the process, it further paints a picture of what the future might look like for the protagonist.

A woman sits before scattered sheets of paper, puzzling over a branding assignment of hers. It is regarding a Chinese restaurant that has been run by her family in Canada. However along with the racial and cultural forces at play, which may be specific to the protagonist, a universal image is also presented to the viewer - one about comfort, intimacy, love and simply a food item being capable of invoking them all.

The film exhibits notable storytelling, but only offers a single moment to build on it. If the project can be developed into a longer endeavor, it is a possibility worth pursuing.
