LACFF 2018 Narrative Feature Screening - Girls Always Happy

  • Downtown Independent 251 South Main Street Los Angeles, CA, 90012 United States (map)

Co-Hosted by: AFI Fest

Girls Always Happy portrays a single mother living with her daughter in a Beijing hutong. Using a novel perspective to look at contemporary urban life, Girls Always Happy explores the spectacle of mutual repulsion, hatred, and harm between a single mother and her daughter; and from their despair, the power of tender love. Director Yang Mingming uses this complexity to explore unique observations and expressions of female relationships.
