About the Film:

Dìdi won the US Dramatic Audience Award at Sundance back in January. It is Sean's critically acclaimed directorial feature film debut based in part on his own experience.


Film Synopsis:

In 2008, during the last month of summer before high school begins, an impressionable 13-year-old Taiwanese American boy learns what his family can’t teach him: how to skate, how to flirt, and how to love your mom.

*Tentatively, there may be a happy hour prior to the screening and a Q&A with Director Sean Wang after the screening. Details to be confirmed closer to the event date.

Mark your calendar to join us for this exclusive cinematic event! Registration for the screening and happy hour/Q&A will be handled separately. Stay tuned for screening registration details.
