故事梗概
Raffi Tang是年轻的亚裔美国女青年,与母亲关系疏远,长年居留外国。因为母亲被杀而回家。她带着自己的悲痛,渐渐被拖入欺骗与无能为力的蛛网。写实的惊悚与失调的家庭戏码。Doris Yeung鲜明的特点是追逐美国梦的冷静写照。

Synopsis
After a long absence abroad, a young Asian American woman Raffi Tang (Françoise Yip) is called home when her estranged mother is murdered. She becomes increasingly drawn into a web of deception and incompetence while at the same time dealing with her own grief. Equal parts noir thriller and dysfunctional family drama, Doris Yeung’s bold debut feature is a sobering tale of the pursuit of the American Dream.

导演手记:
《祖国》审视了移民家庭由于所谓的美国梦而带来的破裂。西方个人成功与幸福的概念需要以传统社会家庭和谐为代价。上百万人移民到美国希望得到更好的生活,但是,然后呢?我看过这些抱负的黑暗面撕裂了我的家庭。我的个人悲剧促使我拍摄了《祖国》,对美国梦变为噩梦的过程小说化。

Director’s Statement:
MOTHERLAND examines the destruction of an immigrant family because
of the so-called American Dream. The Western concept of personal suc-
cess and happiness has come at the expense of traditional societal and
familial harmony. Millions of people immigrate to the U.S. in search of a
better life, but what happens afterwards? I have seen the dark side of these
aspirations tear my family apart. My personal tragedy drove me to make
MOTHERLAND, a fictionalized account of the American Dream turned into
nightmare.
