INTERNATIONAL: Generation Gap

Regent Street Cinema

In Sweden, a single thirty-something woman awkwardly regales her son of her taste for younger men, whilst across the globe a nervous tourist seeks to impress his fun-loving Filipino father by adopting a hard-drinking, chain-smoking teen. These short films zoom in on the tempestuous and at times misguided relationship between generations, the differences between the carefree and the conservative, and the problems caused when the boundaries become blurred. 82’
