Includes a conversation with director Justin Chon
Have you registered for the Film Independent Forum? Sure, you could come to just one screening, but then you’d be missing out on an entire weekend designed to help independent creators get their projects made and seen. Register today.
From award-winning filmmaker Justin Chon (Gook, 2017), Ms. Purple is a poignant drama about Asian American sister and brother, Kasie (Tiffany Chu) and Carey (Teddy Lee), who were raised – and are now seemingly stuck – in Koreatown, Los Angeles. Abandoned by their mother and brought up by their father, the siblings continue to struggle with deep emotional wounds from the difficulty brought on by the parental dynamic. Now, with their father on his deathbed, the estranged Carey comes home to help Kasie care for him. As they reunite over their dying father, Kasie and Carey confront their shared past, attempting to mend their relationship.
2019, 97 min, color, DCP | Directed by Justin Cho With Jake Choi, Alma Martinez, Crystal Lee
