  2. Where Are You From

    Xizi "Cecilia" Hua / United States / 2017 / Documentary / 4 mins
    WHERE ARE YOU FROM explores the often quiet conflict that a Chinese "Parachute Kid" experiences when asked where she is from, while living in the U.S. Though she is certainly Chinese, her desire to blend into American society often overtakes her as she struggles with a proper response that accurately reflects her cross-continental loyalties and upbringing. The short documentary follows her straddling two worlds, the Eastern and the Western, including time in the U.S. and a trip back home to China, where she "parachutes" in for a visit and then just as quickly, is back out again.
