Descendants of the Past, Ancestors of the Future 16 min
Inspired by real events, DESCENDANTS OF THE PAST, ANCESTORS OF THE FUTURE is a moving and heartfelt film about Andrew, the son of Chinese immigrants, who is about to become a father to a baby girl. To ease his apprehension about his impending fatherhood, Andrew desperately needs to understand how his mother Ellen and her own father could have lived apart for most of their lives. When Ellen finally gains the courage to speak about her father after years of restraint, Andrew begins to understand the extraordinary sense of kinship that binds him to his ancestors and descendants, ultimately sending Andrew on a journey that leads to his grandfather. DESCENDANTS OF THE PAST, ANCESTORS OF THE FUTURE is an inspiring story about the incredible bond within a multi-generational Asian family that transcends both time and national boundaries.
