Kogonada’s After Yang is a gorgeous, lyrical film that asks the same questions that great sci-fi films do: What does it mean to be human? What defines us? Is it our memories, our emotions, our compassion? What is love, really, when you think about it?
For me, the film made me reflect on what it means to be Asian-American. In the video essay above, I explain why. Thanks hope you have a chance to check it out!
