Product Description

Breaking Bread is a slice-of-life documentary about a Korean-American family who invites an Iranian friend to make a final meal for their dying father. This poetic journey explores the interaction of different cultures through the celebration of an ordinary man. Through an intimate weaving of food and death, this travelogue-esque documentary provides a moving look at the realities we all face.

  • An I Within
    (Live Action & Animation, 19 minutes, 1999) In this metaphorical journey of redemption, a clown happens across the house of a marionette. Through pantomime, he tells the lifeless marionettes about the colorful life of the circus, where he has found eternal love. But it's a love that consumes the spirit of the clown and offers a sacrifice, giving life to the inanimate marionettes until all that remains is a dream.
