Followed by a Skype Q&A with director Joanne Mony Park!
Co-presented by Agliff and OUTsider.
From director Joanne Mony Park, FISH BONES is an incredible debut about a young woman, Hana (played by Joony Kim), who is striving to find her own identity in a traditionally conservative family. Hana’s heart is torn in half when she meets Nico (Cris Gris), a stunning Latina music producer. This forces her to balance taking care of her ill mother, helping with the family restaurant, and exploring a new, exciting relationship. Park’s sensual experimental narrative is a slow and methodical film, plunging the viewer into an experience of fragmented memories that coalesce into a powerful ending. FISH BONES is a brave and bold first feature. (Jenny Nulf, Director of Programming)
“What we have in FISH BONES is a careful and immaculate deconstruction on what it means to find yourself amidst a sea of doubt. It is a tender, tragic and true work. With such a considerate and assured directorial debut, Joanne Mony Park is bound to be a name you will be hearing a lot about in the near future.” – Screenarchy
