Deconstructing My Depression
Directed by Sally Tran
Mental illness is often an ignored issue in communities of color — passed off as an issue experienced only by the rich and the privileged. In this personal narrative, filmmaker Sally Tran breaks down her struggles with depression — as a first-generation Vietnamese American and as a member of the queer community.
Shorts / 78 minsFrom a Filipino immigrant struggling with her undocumented status in the United States in order to live as an out lesbian to a child’s point of view on the much debated subject of marriage equality, these narratives and documentaries collectively broaden the scope of what it means to be queer.
