Six filmmakers of Chinese origin living within the Chinese diaspora in South-East Asia each made a short film to represent their feelings towards their homeland. Among them, Aditya Assarat’s Now Now Now relates a Chinese-Thai schoolgirl’s meeting with her cousin from mainland China, Royston Tan’s Popiah explores Chinese culinary traditions, while Tsai Ming-Liang’s Walking on Water casts a contemplative reflection on the building in which he grew up. As a collection, Letters from the South offers a series of poetic meditations on Chinese diaspora that combine to present a broad perspective on Chinese cultural identities in Asia today.
