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.

MARVELOUS MOVIE MONDAYS!!

Guest Curator: Adán De La Garza

Theme: Cultural Geography and Performance for video
The videos selected for this series focus on performances for video outside of the studio or gallery that highlight both the agenda of the artist and the how the location they move through can influence or dictate that performance. Simple in their execution the artists remain open to the influence of their surroundings, at time relinquishing control entirely, albeit temporarily. The videos participate in a slow revealing of context and experimentation that rely heavily on one another to expose a myriad of things from the unique sounds of the space, cultural climate, human interaction, or even the infinite potential of a space given vast imagination.
