Freep Film Festival - Shorts Program #5: Belonging


About this film

Culture, identity and food buttress the feeling of community among Asian Americans – especially those that have left their home countries and built a life for themselves here in America. In these series of short films, that sense of belonging is sometimes challenged, but also re-enforced and celebrated.
