Mother's Dinner is a short film approximately 12 minutes-long that covers three generations of a single parent family from an Asian background residing in America. Mother's Dinner explores and raises questions regarding miscommunications and generational deflection between parents and children. To make this film, I was inspired by the Chinese proverb that says: "As the tree wants to remain quiet, the wind won't stop; as the children want to honor their parents, they'll no longer be there." Parents leave no stone unturned to take care of their offspring. Somehow the children may not understand their parents' love and affection until they become parents. In Mother's Dinner, the main character is a single mother who has two children and is busy at work with psychotherapy. She doesn't want to bring her children to see their grandmother every week, but after experiencing several social phenomena such as seeing homeless people with signs begging, an old man walking a dog alone on the street and recalling her patients' similar problems, she changes her mind. She decides to take her children to her mother's house to make her mother happy. Through this film I want to convey to people that it is never too late to take care of their parents. The realization of their love and affection is an important part of the film. Customs and traditions might vary from country to country but the love between parents and children is universal. Moreover, impressed by Ang Lee's trilogy, I would like to make a personal film that falls into the genre of social drama with a hint of tragicomedy. The DVD of the film is available for viewing at the Media Center of Love Library.
