LET’S EAT

Directed by Dixon Wong

As a young woman prepares a meal, she reflects back about both the happy and bitter memories with her mother and the unconditional love they have for each other in the meals they share.

About the filmmaker: Dixon Wong is an American film writer and director, and is the co-owner of Anamon Studios, a small independent studio based out of San Francisco. He is an alumni of the University of California San Diego, where he studied Visual Arts. Soon after college, he worked and managed a screen printing company. Eventually, feeling that he had left the creative art world behind, Dixon decided to pursue a career in animation. “Let’s Eat” is an 8 and a half minute animated short film, and is his debut as a writer and director. He wanted to tell a story about how we often lose sight and take people for granted, and to show appreciation for those who held us and supported us from the beginning: our parents.
