Director Statement

I was inspired to make this film because there is a moment when I had a wedding photography job and saw the couples that didn't quite enjoy their own wedding and it's quite funny yet tragic at the same time. Making this film was quite challenging for me because the message that I wanna brought really sensitive in my country. "The Farewell" is a tragic love story, about the simplicity of love that sometimes the system of life ruined it by itself. Slowly by slowly.
