My Mother, Myself and I

King Yaw Soon

USA 8 min Local

My Mother, Myself, and I is a Chinese coming-of-age short film consisting of four acts.

These four mother-son moments offer a glimpse into their relationship and how it evolves across the years as they tread lightly on the issue of traditional Chinese family values and the social taboos of sexual infidelity and homosexuality.
