Devon is a young man who creates his paintings with gentle movements of his fingers. Eiko Fan is an art teacher who encourages students to create independently. She plays musical instruments to get Devon excited about painting. He vocalizes while he paints. In this moving short film, Devon shows the audience that art is fun. Devon’s mother says, ‘No matter how many times our family watches this film, we are crying and smiling at the same time.’
This family-friendly shorts showcase reflects on how identity is influenced by the evolving relationships with our parents and grandparents and what happens when our notion of home is displaced, remembered, and imagined.
