Director Nicole Chi Amén, a Costa Rican filmmaker of Chinese descent, investigates her fascinating family story in this sensual diaristic film about language, nationality, and identity. As a young woman, Amén’s grandmother fled China’s cultural revolution, following a handful of relatives to Costa Rica. Exploring the textures, sounds, and objects connected to her grandmother, Amén searches for belonging in her family’s Chinese past.  A selection of the Visions du Réel festival in Switzerland, GUIÁN was supported by an AFS Grant. With Nicole Chi Amén in person.
