Ah Ma (2007)

Ah Ma is lying in the hospital, her life hanging by a thread. Her family gathers by her deathbed to send her off. Overwhelmed by sadness, they struggle to find their own way of coming to terms with the impending end.

This short film is inspired by the passing of Anthony Chen's grandmother in 2005. It's a sensitive observation of the ways people react and deal with death and seeks to be an honest exploration of the human condition.
It has received a Special Mention Award at the 60th Cannes Film Festival.
