“We Wove a Net” is a short film about what it means to grow up Asian American in southeast Michigan. Through the eyes of women in four immigrant families, we unpack the stories that are told in our communities about coming to this country. Along the journey, we ask ourselves what is lost in this pursuit of the American Dream; we search for spaces that can hold all the parts of us; and finally, we seek a different type of love, one grounded in healing and compassion for ourselves.
The film debuted in San Francisco at the United States of Asian America Festival in May 2017 and premiered in Detroit, Michigan shortly after. Feel free to reach out with questions about the project or to access a copy of the film.
