Me, Mom and Mona

Réalisé par Mina Shum
Canada, 1993 (documentaire, 20 minutes, couleurs)

Description du film [en anglais] :
« The women of the Shum family are a force to be reckoned with. Sitting around joking about how they pull the wool over Dad's eyes, or remembering all the absurdities of growing up Chinese in Vancouver, it's clear they've hit on a strategy that can handle both Chinese tradition and Canadian custom -- humour. The laughter resonates throughout Me, Mom and Mona to touch off much deeper responses. »

Citation sur Me, Mom and Mona [en anglais]

« The film is basically an intimate conversation between Mina [Shum] and her sister interspersed with cut-away footage. Absent from the film is the father. In fact, much of the film tells secrets about the father and reveals strategies for how to deal with him. The daughters learn from the mother, and the mother -- stronger and much livelier than the mother in Double Happiness -- leads the charge. »
