How Will I Remember is an autoethnographic essay film exploring my migrant identity in relation to grief and lens-based practice. It's loosely based on my lived experience as a first-generation Chinese immigrant, depicting fragments of my memory as I detach from my ethnic past and embrace my Australian future. Through the contested and conflicted diptych moving images and bilingual voiceover, this film renders a faltered narrative that oscillates between fact and fiction, past and present, personal and social. It examines the hidden associations between image-making and identity formation, to cultivate new insights into the migrant experience in contemporary Australia.
