A Picture of You
Directed by J.P. Chan
Kyle and Jen, estranged siblings, travel from New York City to rural Pennsylvania to pack up the home of their recently deceased mother. While there, they make a discovery that turns their world upside-down. This is a serious movie about life that collides with a funny movie about death. It’s a story about family, loss, secrets, letting go, and starting anew.
Best Screenplay, 2014 Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival
