Dìdi (弟弟)

Set in Fremont, CA, in the year 2008, DÌDI (弟弟) is a portrait of adolescence told through the hyper-specific lens of Chris Wang, a.k.a Wang-Wang, a 13-year-old first-generation, Asian American, child of immigrants. Loosely inspired by my own upbringing, it is everything I want to say now about everything I experienced then. It is an ode to the joys and pains of adolescence, a love letter to immigrant mothers, and an examination of how it feels to learn to love yourself during a time when the world says you’re unworthy of it.
