After a series of critically acclaimed shorts, writer-director J.P. Chan confidently enters the scene with his feature film debut, A PICTURE OF YOU. In this poignant narrative of moving out and moving on, two estranged siblings — Kyle (Andrew Pang) and Jen (Jo Mei) — attempt to reconcile their differences over a weekend packing up their late mom’s lakehouse. Eschewing familiar sibling tropes, Chan’s film balances personal filial piety with modern guilt.

A PICTURE OF YOU reunites Chan with frequent collaborator Jo Mei (who also shares writing credit) on a film that is sure to delight audiences with its careful blend of drama, humor and nostalgia. This highly personal narrative captures Chan at his most vulnerable. The result is a thoughtful meditation of life, death and the infallible bonds that keep us together.
