Golden Boy

Directed by Kitty Hu

Chen Hu, a 51-year old computer science engineer in the Bay Area, is scrambling around the house, preparing for his wife’s discharge from the hospital. In the midst of the frenzy, he yells at his daughter for filming at the wrong time. That’s me. I’m documenting my father’s journey throughout this entire experience – how he has to balance family and work and how he adapts to being a caregiver. Everything feels overwhelming, but this film explores how as my father says, “We are together.”
