Small Talk

| 88 min

In this intense, highly personal film, director Hui-Chen Huang confronts the void of silence between her and her mother. The two live together but have barely talked for decades – her mother preparing all the meals but spending virtually all her time away or in her room. “One day, I finally summon up the courage to sit her down and make her talk… But am I ready to hear what she has to say? Are we ready to face what has been buried for so long?” Small Talk won the Teddy Award for best LGBT documentary at the Berlinale.
