Monsoon

British-Chinese-Cambodian director Hong Khaou cements himself as a filmmaker of immense lyricism and empathy with this gorgeously-shot, sensitively-written drama about displacement, belonging and homegoing. Henry Golding, as you’ve likely never seen him before, shines as a man searching for answers and despite a slight running time, it leaves a lasting impression.

Synopsis

Kit (Henry Golding), a Vietnam-born, UK-based man returns to the country of his birth to scatter his mother’s ashes and perhaps find a connection to a place he remembers very little of, but remains tethered to.
