OPENING NIGHT: I WILL MAKE YOU MINEDirected by Lynn Chen
CAAMFest Online: Heritage At Home is proud to start our festival with I WILL MAKE YOU MINE, a powerful narrative almost a decade in the making. Lynn Chen’s directorial debut packs a tender yet powerful punch. Goh Nakamura is negotiating the untidiness of life. The singer-songwriter turned customer service representative has moved from the Midwest back to Los Angeles, the home of his formative years and a past life. Once there, he runs headlong into a cascade of women from his past and present, each presenting versions of what transpired and what should happen.
Through the lens of an interwoven group of kin and friends, the ensemble drama I WILL MAKE YOU MINE explores themes of the past and how dreams permutate. It provokes reflections on universal tropes with a less crowded aural landscape than most. When is it time to move on? And who do we take with us on our journey forward? What vision of the future do we hold onto and which we will let go of?
