Decoupling 脱钩

Milwaukee Film Festival

Preceded by LAST TRUTHS FROM A DYING STAR | Dir. Dontay Konkel

A "Chinese" father reflects on the changing relationship of China and US during his trip to Beijing to retrieve his 3-year-old "American" daughter who has been stranded because of the recent “decoupling” of the two countries. Born in China and living in the American Midwest, filmmaker Yinan Wang attempts to unpack his own experience of how a transnational migrant family deals with the distress caused by identity, nationalism, and geopolitics.
