Marvelous Movie Mondays: Filial Piety – Parents and Kids

EPFC | November 21st, 2018

MARVELOUS MOVIE MONDAYS!!
guest curator: georgia fu

Theme: “Filial Piety – Parents and Kids”

This was a short that I found on The Atlantic recently about a “psychic’s tragic predicting coming true”. The loss of a parent is probably one of the most devastating things that can happen to a family, but what I found touching about this piece is that it’s essentially feels like a son trying to connect with his mother, through their shared tragedies, in a short film.

Marvelous Movie Mondays: The Occupant

MARVELOUS MOVIE MONDAYS!!
Guest Curator: Jenna Maurice
Theme: Inner Thoughts

Title: The Occupant
Filmmaker: Elise Simard

I first saw this piece years ago when I was working as a pre-screener for the Nashville Film Festival. It’s highly personal, whispering to the viewer some simple secrets of life. Some of these text passages caused tiny explosions of affirmation in my head the first time I saw it, and they still ring true for me now after all this time. I hope they do the same for you.

I encountered this film as a curator for Happy Family Night Market’s film series, which explores Asian and Asian American identity expressed through food. I appreciated this film’s playful tone—older people are rarely depicted as having such energy and verve. Another perspective on the theme of Aging.
