Directed by Kristina Wong
Between a young girl, her mother, and her grandmother, MOTHER TONGUE shows how language can bring people together or tear them apart. Crystal grows up without the ability to speak her Taiwanese mother tongue, which prevents her from connecting with her grandmother and cultural heritage.
