Filmmaker, video producer, singer, musician, ethereal angel and ray of sunshine Reina Lam goes over every single time Turning Red made her cry (apprx every five minutes) and why! Reina also tells the story of the very cool community screening she attended of the film, the similarities between Chinatown San Francisco and Chinatown Toronto, which movie 4-year-old Reina helped her grandpa not be scared of (in theory), why seeing a movie with the Lam Fam is basically a heist, Reina roars "MOAR!", we talk metaphors and generational family trauma, and how representation can encourage us to pursue the beauty of imagination rather than tolerating an intolerable reality!
This beautiful chat with Reina is full of wisdom, tons of heart and fun, laughs, and tears. Enjoy, all you popcorn pandas!
