FOOTPRINTS, 13min, Canada, Horror/Family
Directed by Kevin Saycharuen
Deep in the forest, Cahng, an injured hunter searches for his family who are being haunted by a supernatural force.
Footprints is a film created in equal parts of my love and frustration of filmmaking.
Growing up as a first-generation son of Laotian immigrants in Canada, you live a two-sided life. One side remembers what blood runs through your vein- for me, it was my parents growing up in a small rural village in Laos and how they suffered through civil unrest and immigrated all over the world until settling in Canada. The other side is being brought up as a son of immigrants in a metropolitan North American city. Tradition clashes with first world culture that do not comfortably fit together.
Footprints is a film where I attempt to reconcile my parent's tradition and my own generation's culture together. A film that combines my upbringing with the blood that runs through my veins, remembering and honoring both sides.
