Two Lies
A film by Pam Tom
1989, 25 minutes, BW, 16mm/DVD
Order No. W99352
Doris Chu, a recently divorced Chinese American woman, has plastic surgery to make her eyes rounder. From her teenage daughter Mei's perspective, her mother's two eyes equal two lies. When the family journeys to a desert resort during Doris' recuperation, a series of revelations and bitter confrontations erupt. This beautiful black and white drama is a poignant study of generational conflict and the struggle for identity in a world of hybrid cultures.

    "Fresh, contemporary. The sharp sense of cultural disorientation depends on Tom's atmospheric style. Clearly the work of a filmmaker who is fearless."
